Trinket #199 - Kali's Earrings

Silly, I know, but these tiny carved skulls remind me of the heads that the Hindu goddess Kali wears either as a necklace or attached at her waist. I know those skulls aren't supposed to be perceived as small, rather Kali is to appear much larger than us mere mortals, but I can't help myself. Anyway, if Kali were fond of earrings, I imagine she'd like a couple of heads on those as well.

Also, to really appreciate the craftsmanship in these little wooden beads, you should know that they measure only 6mm in height!
