"What size is the pendant? The dimensions listed can't be right 27 inches wide and 50 inches long?"
Very nice pendant, seems very well made. At first I wasn't cazy about the leather cord & having to tie it, but after I put it on, I liked it. You can adjust it to whatever length you want. You can also put the pendant on other chains, which I plan to do. Overall, a good value....

Story Behind the Art:
Set in sterling, the copper medallion carries the Hindu/Buddhist symbol OM that's part of the famous mantra: Om Mani Padme Hum, which translates as 'jewel in the lotus'. Hindus and Buddhist believe the sound OM replicates the sound of the cosmos and the way they chant it I have to agree they have a point. The workmanship on the medallions is quite special and illustrates an ancient technique known as Repousse, used by jewelers and statue makers in Nepal for millenia. The copper plate is beaten over a form and then the carving is done from the back of the plate. Surface etching is done from the front while finishing the piece but most work is done from behind. The individual who does this work in Patan normally applies his talents to ornamenting copper statues and this work is very traditional indeed.

Unfortunately, the picture is much nicer than the product.the silver and copper pendant is reasonably nice, however the ohm symbol lacks clarity. The leather band is really cheap which reduces the overall value of the product. I will likely keep it and use a silver chain.Read More
