TWO TALISMANS (Dealer: titcoRet) – Set of a Shinto/Buddhist talisman for relieving the convulsion of seven-year-old boy and an unopenable talisman. Meiji period (1868-1912), Japan.
Personally I’ve never seen such talisman stabbed by nails, so that it’s unusual and I have no idea what those nails stand for. Aged deterioration as is.
approx. 26 x 10.5 x 2.5cm (10.23 x 4.13 x 0.98in), approx. 20 x 13 x 1.3cm (7.87 x 5.11 x 0.51in)
