Various silver hair ornaments mounted with amber and turquoise. The largest piece on the right is inset with a more recent imitation turquoise cabachon and this replaces a piece that has long since been lost. The shape of the elongated silver pieces is reminiscent of a conch or chank shell, an important symbol of the Dharma.

Salween Vallley, North East of Lhasa
