Quick Overview:

We like to call this piece our ramulet.  Amulets like this hand-carved, curly-horned ram were traditionally used as offerings for fertility and prosperity. Buff colored, marble-like stone talismans were once used among the Quechua and Aymara people for ensuring the reproductive fertility of their domestic animals and hence their prosperity as a people.  Comes with its own colorful hand-woven, gently-used textile pouch. Carved in Peru.

Details

Called illas or canopas in Quechua, and mullas in Aymara, small figurative charms like these were used to ensure fertility, love, and other of life's benefits. Those which are made for the purpose of increasing the fecundity and health of flocks of herd animals are also sometimes called chacras, that word meaning field or pasture, and the charms being activated by burial in a field or pasture.
