so now we also know where the Beatles favourite Indian sitar musician got his surname-

i have been aware that the chank shell is one of the 8 auspicious symbols... as depicted in various tibetan contexts .. and used to have a carved bone bead netted lama-apron that featured all 8 of them - but it got sold. i have archived photos but they are large and i never yet found a way to reduce the size so i can share here. only new images from my phone are usually OK.

if you have my book from 2016 "Beads... a collector's guide" its shown on P. 23 at the start of the Tibet chapter.
