Kali skull hand carved bone mala necklace. 108 hand carved skull beads and one guru bead. Each bead is approximately 6mm x 12mm. The necklace mala is 50 inches (127 cm) long and ends with one guru bead and a red or maroon cotton tassel.
Bone bead malas are often used for meditation by Buddhist to remind them of the impermanence of our body's time on earth.
Impermanence , also called Anicca or Anitya, is one of the essential doctrines and a part of three marks of existence in Buddhism. The doctrine asserts that all of conditioned existence, without exception, is "transient, evanescent, inconstant".
