This vintage design has been popular for generations.  The Makara (water dragon) motif shows two diety heads on each side, but this piece is so worn, its is a bit difficult to see it.  Old, worn, a bit dirty and quite tarnished.  Two-piece design with pin.  Pin pulls out and one section is removed to open.  Replace the small piece and insert pin to lock.  Beautifully made, nice and heavy.  Made from good tribal silver.  Well constructed and sturdy.  This bracelet fits nicely and is lovely to wear.  Old, worn silver just feels good on your skin.  Inner circumference is 7 inches.  Slightly oval shaped.  Inner diameter is 2.25 inches.  1-1/8 inches wide at the widest point. 

The makara originated in India in Hindu mythology and takes the form of water dragon deities, or sometimes crocodiles, that would lay in wait for unsuspecting sailors on the ocean or even for young girls fetching water from rivers and streams, then pull them under to their deaths.  The makara were symbols of fierceness and were often sculpted at the entrances to places of importance such as temples and palaces and to guard treasure.  Over time the makara became a symbol of intelligence, destiny, and prosperity as well as strength. Eventually the makara symbol was incorporated into decorative arts all over the world and today can be seen from East Asia to the Middle East.
