An amazing ancient Pumtek bead displaying 6 Garudas or chevrons. This is a particularly large bead of its type and is highly agatised with a sought after colour. An incredibly beautiful pumtek with a dZi-like patina that only develops from many centuries of being worn. This is the largest bead of its type that we have ever offered for sale.
This bead has remained in a private collection since the 1980s
Origin: Burma, Pyu/Tircul
Size: 37mm x 9mm
Condition: Very Good with minor weathering commensurate with age and a tiny nik (worn smooth) to the end.
