Yak is an important animal in Tibet as they are used as packing animals for the nomadic tribes. To honor their passing they are used in practice, continuing to be of service as they pass from this consciousness to another.
Wearing yak bone is a reminder of impermanence - the more we contemplate impermanence and death, the more fruitful life becomes. Yak bone is also said to help maintain good blood circulation.
Pendant was handcrafted in Bali, Indonesia. This skill is handed down from generation to generation, usually passed on between father and son. Bone is a versatile material that is sturdy and durable.
All materials used in the creation of this necklace are recycled, ethically sourced and fair trade materials.đź™Źđź’›đź’›đź’›
