Drawings of monks often show them accompanied by these companions on their path to enlightenment. The butterfly and moth are considered the symbol of the soul. In addition to its beauty, this necklace carries high spiritual worth for the wearer.
This old pendant has been restrung with strands of coral, turquoise and other old and newer beads. Collectible Museum Quality Antique Tibetan Pendant with age patina intact on back surface.
