This is an original Tibetan temple lock that we collected from the ancient city of Kathmandu, Nepal. The skeleton keys are artifacts in their own right, and are unique to the lock.
This lock has a few tricks up its sleeve. If you simply unlock it then it will not open. Once it has been unlocked then you need to turn the turtles head to the right for it to open properly.
The turtle has always been a universal symbol for endurance, logenvity, patience and peace. They always follow the long slow path.
Measures 5.5 x 3.
This sturdy, functional and unique artifact is sure to impress. For now, it will lay on my coffee table for my guests to play with.
