Zen: Glass Calligraphy Pendant
Chinese calligraphy for "Zen (Chan)" in a necklace/pendant.
Zen simply means Meditation, but it has become associated with Mahayana Buddhism which emphasizes sitting meditation in its practice. Originating in India and spreading through China as Chan Buddhism (the Chan character in Japanese is pronounced "Zen"), Zen is popular through the world.
Approximately .75 x 1.25" rectangular metal bezel with diamond-shaped glass front. The glass magnifies the calligraphy image slightly and the bezel's finish and thick casting gives it a vintage look. Pendant comes with an 18" length black leather cord necklace with end cap, lobster clasp, and a 2" adjustable chain extender (18" - 20"). Silk jewelry gift pouch included (random colors).
Choice of 3 bezel colors: Polished Silver, Vintage Copper, or Gunmetal Silver.
