The Ancient Amulets of Tibet: THOGCHAGS. Thogchags are Tibetan talismans made of bronze and meteoric metals dating as far back as the Bronze Age. There is little research into their origins, as excavation of Tibetan sites was considered taboo, so there is still much to learn about their significance in Tibetan civilization.

Amulets.from ancient Tibetan kingdom shang shung
(Think these are western Tibet; they look like photos N. Bellezza took, not what I saw in the east.) Thogchags are Tibetan talismans made of bronze and meteoric metals as far back as the Bronze Age. While precise dates for the Tibetan Bronze Age are unknown, evidence from var. sites indicate it started around the beginning of the 2nd Millennium BCE. An unbroken tradition of producing amulets extends into the Iron Age and Buddhist periods...a cultural legacy several thousand years old. (edited)
