Powerful in its simplicity, this flat talisman was probably worn around the neck to bring good fortune. It represents a person in perpetual prayer, asking favor of the gods. The person who once wore it and the gods he believed in have been forgotten with time. Yet, in the presence of this amulet, we feel the energy, the heartbeat of that distant life and the colorful world he inhabited. - (PF.1046)
