This beautiful pin evokes generosity, open-ness, gratitude. ¬†We were inspired by an ancient Chinese hair stick of a tiny open right hand and a gesture from Balinese Hindu culture called "nunas. " The term 'nunas' is used to indicate a courteous and grateful request in the highest register of the Balinese language. ¬†It is the word you use to request holy water, to request a divine gift, and most politely to request something from another person you respect. ¬†It is an open gesture of waiting for the gift of prosperity, of tranquility, of harmony. ¬†It is one of the most beautiful and humble gestures within Balinese social interaction and Hindu ritual practice. ¬†It is a gesture of love and respect. ¬†We have sought to represent all of these ideas at the same time that we have sought to make a universal statement about the lovliest parts of human interaction and to do this beautifully and simply. Handmade and hand finished in Indonesia; White Brass; Includes stick and ring.
