Protective Tiger Bell Amulet

$45.00
About Details Inspiration

We've searched the world to find talismanic amulets that protect and strengthen the wearer.  This odd-looking little bell is meant to represent a tiger, and he comes from Nepal.  There, and in many other parts of the world, the tiger is a protective symbol worn to safeguard babies, adults, shamans, and sometimes even animals.  This is a particularly playful one, with wide-open eyes and a smiling mouth. The bell is softly resonant - just enough to remind you throughout your tough day that you're being watched over. The amulet is handmade in bronze with a brass chain and can be worn by men or women.  Layer it with our other talisman necklaces for maximum potency.

There are some phonetic similarities between the Chinese word for "tiger" and for "protection".  Both are pronounced something like "hoo", which may be the reason the two are historically associated.
