TIBETAN HAND CARVED TURQUOISE SKULLS by Voodoomamma TIBETAN HAND CARVED TURQUOISE SKULLS by Voodoomamma
Tibetan Hand-carved Turquoise Skulls

These are very old and rare skull carvings from Tibet.
Each one is unique and done by individual artisans with their own particular style.

Is there any significance behind them other than looking good?

To my knowledge, the carved skull in some cultures is a form of ancestor worship and/or respect or esteem for the dead, or perhaps a trophy representing an enemy one has dealt with.
But as far as I know in this context; it is somehow linked to 'good fortune'!
I hope this helps!!?

It does, I have a small bag of Skull beads pretty similar to the ones above but had no clue what I'd use 'em for, thank you.

I am happy you like them. They were carved by Chinese artisans some time ago...I suppose you could call them'vintage'!
