The pendant of this beauty is a Gau. Ghau boxes or "hidden box" lockets were traditionally worn by pilgrims used to carry an image of Buddha, prayers or Tibetan medicine. This pendant features a goddess and I have had differing opinions as to which one this is. She is carrying a shell, which makes it possible she is Vasudhara, goddess of wealth, abundance and prosperity. The details are stunning. A true work of art.
