Handcarved bone medicine shield or stick pendant in a medium size measures 2-7/8 long by 7/8 inch wide (71mm long by 24mm wide). It is 6mm thick. These are sold in a package of five.
This is dark brown in color and carved decoratively with small circles. With a 2mm hole. Would make a great focal point for a necklace or purchase a pair for use as earrings. Each one is a little bit different since they are all handcarved. You will get a selection of five pendants similar to those pictured.
This style of carved medicine "stick" as they are called was traditionally used by a healer or shaman to ward off evil spirits that were believed to cause illness. It is also believed to provide protection to its wearer. Ours are not old but are newly made in the style of the ancient shaman medicine stick.
