There isn't much to write about this piece other than the fact that is superbly powerful. This piece was found during an investigation in Tibet. In ancient times and even still in modern times, monks in holy places would make what are known as begging bowls. These bowls served many functions but two of their main functions were to keep evil spirits away and to ask the gods for blessings. Most of the time these bowls were made from human skulls. Offerings such as wine, food, precious stones, and even blood were placed in the begging bowls either to ward off evil or-- as the name suggests-- beg the gods for their blessings, powers, magic, etc.
During the investigation, a skull was found that had been treated and turned into a begging ball. Inside of this bowl was found the item you are getting. We did not remove the skull because often time the removal of a begging skull means that you carry the negative energies with you. However, we did take this piece. We were hesitant to take the piece for the same reason, but we have done testing on this piece and everything is okay. This piece will not only protect you and ward off evil, but it will also give you a connection to the Tibetan gods that will allow you to seek all sorts of things such as magic, prophecy, blessings, wealth, and more. All you have to do is wear the piece during meditation and mentally project the things that you want.
Only because I know somebody will ask-- we aren't quite sure when this piece was placed in the bowl. Obviously this piece isn't ancient, which leads us to believe that the piece is still being used. However, this piece is vintage and the magic of the bowl would have protected it, so the answer is we aren't sure. Again, this piece is a vintage piece.
