The vibrant dragon design on our bracelet is based on a Tibetan motif adapted from a pair of plates of an eighteenth century saddle. The original plates are notable for their delicate pierced work, the inlaying of gold and silver, and the unusual archaic style of the dragons on each plate, which are distinguished by a short feline snout, a single horn, a split tendril emerging from behind the head, a long curving body, catlike limbs, and a curling split tail.
