This lovely handcrafted Tibetan Gau (also spelled Ghau or Gao) is beautifully done in Copal and is embellished with sterling silver, coral, and turquoise.
A gau is a prayer box or vessel that is used to carry strong amulets (totems, idols, fetishes, talismans, juju, lucky charms).

 In Tibet a gau is most often employed to carry a prayer or blessed mantra.

This pretty gau has 2 bailes. One for hanging from a ribbon or necklace, and the second which  may be used to hang charms.
Gaus may also be worn horizontally, with each baile connected to your necklace.

This price includes pendant only.
