Extraordinary vintage supplies presented by ForetTwo: Brown Jade Pendant- Carved Endless Knot. This is a listing for a beautiful carved brown jade endless knot pendant. This is one of the Eight Auspicious Shapes in Tibetan Buddhism. The knot also has a place in Celtic design. It is carefully carved with double lines and brightly polished. The stone is semi-opaque and reflects a rich golden brown in the light as seen in photograph #5 to your right.

Below is a short article on the endless knot. It was so interesting that I just had to include it in the description of this item:

"The Endless Knot (Skt. shrivatsa; Tib. dpal be'u):
The endless knot is a closed, graphic ornament composed of right-angled, intertwined lines. It is conjectured that it may have evolved from an ancient naga symbol with two stylized snakes.
This latter image signifies the dramatic interplay and interaction of the opposing forces in the dualistic world of manifestation, leading to their union, and ultimately to harmony in the universe. This fact is amply reflected in the symmetrical and regular form of the endless knot.

The intertwining of lines reminds us how all phenomena are conjoined and yoked together as a closed cycle of cause and effect. Thus the whole composition is a pattern that is closed on in itself with no gaps, leading to a representational form of great simplicity and fully balanced harmony.
Since all phenomena are interrelated, the placing of the endless knot on a gift or greeting card is understood to establish an auspicious connection between the giver and the recipient. At the same time, the recipient is goaded to righteous karma, being reminded that future positive effects have their roots in the causes of the present. This is because the knot represents a connection, a link with our fates, binding us to our karmic destiny. Not surprisingly, this is one of the most favorite symbols in Tibetan Buddhism, and often occurs independently on its own.
Since the knot has no beginning or end it also symbolizes the infinite wisdom of the Buddha."

This piece has been in my collection for quite a while and it needs a good home with someone who will appreciate its significance. This is a versatile piece. Put it on your altar or carry it with you. The holes are big enough to accommodate a slender cord, so you could wear it right away. Or, it can be worked into a piece of jewelry.
