A beautifully made and very unusual tribal design from northern Thailand. This is a "soul keeper" a protective amulet worn by children and others who may need protection. Much as we may wear a St Christopher, this keeps the wearer safe in hazardous situations and journeys.
The silver basketwork design mirrors the real basketwork caskets which are kept in the house
The pendant measures approx. 4 cms. x 3.5 cms.
