Etched TURTLES on LILYPAD Bone Bead Pendant!
This extraordinary bead has been hand carved, etched and then colored with 2 colors of india ink (a permanent treatment). This bone bead pendant is drilled through the top. The hole measures approx. 1mm in diameter. This bead is truly unique. Don't miss out.
The material comes from domestic cow or buffalo bone; both are used as draft animals (for example, to plow muddy rice paddies) and are consumed as food. They are highly valued and are not dispatched only for their horns or bones; these have an incredibly small value compared with that of a living animal. Water buffalo and Ox bone are obtained after death, and since the cultures from which they are attained believe in utilizing the whole animal, nothing goes to waste, and thus the animal is honored more fully.
