Small "Seated Buddha" Pendant
Small metal Buddha pendant amulet encased in base metal frame. The upside-down heart shape that is die-cut into the back of the pendant represents enlightenment (this started in the 2nd century BC when Buddhists began inscribing the symbol as a way of depicting the fig leaf, which, to them, represented enlightenment). 27mm x 18mm x 5mm thick. Very, very cool. Newly made in Thailand and aged to look antique.
