Skull Mala

Skull, Mala from India (SKU 3913)

Hand carved cow bone skull Mala from India with 108 beads.


These carved skull beads are reminiscent of the necklace of skulls that the Goddess Kali wears symbolizing liberation, knowledge and wisdom. Traditionally a mala—which means “garland”—has 108 beads strung together and may be used to aid meditation or chanting. You may also see malas adorning the wrists, necks, and altars of meditation devotees and at the top of mats of yoga practitioners.
