This full mala is the same as our original Skull Full Mala, but in a deep ochre color. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, skull bead malas are thought to afford protection to the wearer. As reminders of impermanence, they are also used to cultivate wisdom. Hand-carved from cow bone fragments, with a black snake-knot tassel. 108 beads, 1/4" diameter.
Total length of beaded strand 40 3/4"
