yes, the description is spot on! it's hard to see how different this piece. an actual tiny statue, inside an interesting plastic "bubble" for display around your neck. the thai case is less impressive than the statue inside it, so the pendant has a casual appeal. HOWEVER... it is a verrrry cool casual piece.two thumbs for this one. i wasn't sure what to expect. wonderfully surprised. i bought the waxed cord and wear it simply strung on the cord. worth it for the price, and the details on all sides of the statue!
