    Antique Turkoman tribal tumar bozbend patterned amulet, commemorating ancestors in the nine blossom motifs along the top edge of the mountain symbol and reflected in the same number of pendants attached to the bozbend tube.

    The coins and bell beads show some dates probably preceding the time frame in which the tumar bozbend was created. They date from the 1200s and 1300s of the Moslem A.
