Item details

This Peace Sign Hand Gesture Carved Bone Pendant features an iconic symbol that was widely used by the peace movement in the 1960s and 1970s.

Of course it's still used today in a world where there is still much conflict. It features the index and middle fingers raised in a V with the thumb held up to the remaining two fingers that are folded against the palm.

If you happen to be in Bali, Indonesia, where this piece was crafted, and you ask a bunch of kids to pose for a photo, you can also expect to see this gesture used quite often.

The piece is carved all around, as can be seen if you scroll through my stock photos. You can see the reverse side in my fourth photo.

The piece you are purchasing will not be the one shown in my photos but will be very similar. Indeed, I think they're better carved.

PAYPAL is my preferred method of payment. Don't have it? You can still pay that way using your credit card. Just click on the PayPal icon at checkout and follow the prompts.

BACK STORY
The peace sign hand gesture is believed to have had its genesis back in World War II when it was used as a sign of defiance against the Nazis and, later, after their defeat, as a V for Victory signal.

Years later, during anti-Vietnam War protests, some protesters began using the hand sign to denote "peace" instead of war.

Protesters John Lennon and Yoko Ono were among those who made the symbol so recognisable.

The word for hand in Bahasa Indonesia is 'tangan'.
