This Tibetan Yak Bone amulet bracelet is beautifully hand-painted with amulet symbols.
The yak, a long-haired bovine found throughout the Himalayan region of south Central Asia, it is the most important animal to the Tibetan people.
The Yak Bone has a significant meaning especially when it comes to death. For Buddhists, it is a constant reminder to live life to the fullest -- to cherish moments that happen in one's life, and to become courageous in facing obstacles.
Each bracelet is hand-carved and painted by Himalayan artisans and may vary slightly in colors and patterns.
