Necklace Inscribed with the Name of King Pratapamalladeva

This piece is from the Art Institute of Chicago. It was made in Nepal in the Kathmandu Valley in about 1650. This piece impressed me because of all the intricate details. I found it really beautiful. Also, it amazed me that someone would wear this giant, and probably very heavy piece as a necklace.
