Content

Gawu, Tibetan women’s amulet or protective talisman, is a type of jewelry essential for Tibetan women. When you travel to Tibet, you can find Gawu worn on the neck of Tibetan women. They are usually very small, well-crafted boxes made of silver or copper or other precious metals.

Gawu

Their exterior contains very exquisite carving inlaid with pearls or other gems. Their interior usually contains a small image of the Buddha made of clay or metal, statues, sutras, magic knots, Tibetan pills , ward off evils and some other things. They may also contain an image of one's guru. A gawu box can be taken wherever one goes and used to invoke protection from the Buddhas and Dharma Protectors.
