Crown or Head-dress, of the type worn by royal princes in Nepal. The front is dominated by three Paisley-shaped pendants with crescent-moon bases supporting the figures of, at the centre, the Buddha Amitāyus and at each side the Green Tārā. At the centre of the forehead plate is a carved soapstone image of the Green Tārā, while hanging from its bottom edge is a series of green moss-agate drops. The attached breastplate bears a centrally-placed Garuḍa. Made of emeralds, rubies and diamonds and other semi-precious stones in silver. In a wooden box with 1961,12-14.2.
