This petite silver plaque is a charming example of Tibetan metalwork. The thin, square charm is decorated in repoussé with a wild horse galloping in the moonlight, surrounded by fluffy clouds. The horse can likely be interpreted as a Tibetan wind horse, an auspicious creature symbolizing the human soul and often shown beside the four animals representing the cardinal directions. Riderless and free, the wind horse is thought to move through the heavens with all the speed and strength of the four winds.

Old glue residue on the back.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
