Unusual thogchag :
A pair of bronze "statue earrings",
which seems about 50 years old.
*
Tibetans wear Thogchag amulets
a little all object in ancient bronze, sometimes even old usual objects become amulets (for example old harness buckles) simply because very old and discovered in the ground
near a stupa for example.
*
Here we have a beautiful example of a sacred object diverted from its original use.
These bronze earrings probably adorned a statue of a Buddha (Tsépamé? Guru Rinpoche?) That no longer exists
and have been recycled into amulets.
*
I propose here these two "earrings"
as ancient Tibetan curiosities.
