about 24k gold - Sewell Silverback
Sewell Silverback Banana Plugs, Dual Screw Lock, 12 Pair (24 Pieces)
Sewell Silverback Banana Plugs, Dual Screw Lock, 12 Pair (24 Pieces)
These Silverback banana plugs have the quality you've come to expect from Sewell, including; gold plated connectors, a heavy duty, but light casing, and a tight cable-screw design. What sets these banana plugs apart is its unique 2 screw lock design. This connection will secure your cable more than a single screw, or open screw design. Dual screw connectivity provides a secure connection, durability, and the most crisp and clear signal possible with more signal transmission through contact. Similar to our Pro Maestro banana plug, this easy solder-less installation only requires a small flat head screw driver and four steps. Loosen the screws and feed the speaker cable into the silverback. Lock down the cable with both screws. Screw the banana plug back together. You're finished. All in all you should only need 30 seconds for this entire operation. Today, many electronics use the banana plug interface, also known as binding post (referring to this connection in its female form). This female binding post connection that accepts this banana plug is found commonly on virtually all audio/video receivers, speaker wall plates, and more. Banana plugs offer an alternative to inserting a bare speaker wire into the equipment. Often a bare speaker connection is not as reliable as a guaranteed banana plug connection. Wires tend to get pulled out or frizzy after time passes. Banana plugs require only one install, giving you a permanent and robust connector at the end of your speaker wire.

Very bejewelled khampa girl (1 of 2)
Very bejewelled khampa girl (1 of 2)
Another costume from the King Gesar Arts Festival / Khampa arts festival in the Kham region of Tibet in 2004. This lady wears around 30 kilos of highest quality Tibetan jewelry, with a value surely of millions of yuan. So many coral and dzi bead necklaces and gold jewelry too, and every finger has a massive elongated 24k gold saddle ring with either coral or dzi beads in. She wears many amber and coral beads in her hair - the traditional khampa women's headdress. Massive amulets and precious stones are also worn on the back, and below the waist front, behind and on the sides. The huge amber beads visible on her headdress are attached on fabric strips strands all the way to the level of her boots, meaning she carries nearly 100 of those amber rocks in her headdress. She looks very serene for somebody carrying so much weight around all day ===================================================== Ornaments make up most of the life savings of many Khampa families, and so play an important role in Tibetan families' lives as well as in announcing the social status of the wearers. They are saved up for over many years and handed down for centuries from generation to generation within families. Until very recently, these families were nomadic and have to move every few months because of the snowy seasons in the Himalayas, so Khampas have always needed to store their wealth in portable form. So being unable to store wealth in the form of estates or houses or land or in a bank, for millenia wealth has been stored in art, precious fabrics, and particularly into ornaments. Their culture is very conservative about the type of ornaments favored: for thousands of years jewelry made from amber, turquoise and coral have been worn because the stones are believed to hold spiritual power. Gold and silver and also naturally found in Tibet, and the use of these metals by the wealthy also goes back thousands of years. Their ornaments are very chunky, bold and colorful. While the gold earrings that Khampa women wear may have cost them a year or maybe several year's of their salary, ornaments carry so much social status in their society that probably didn't have to think twice about the purchase. To the Khampa people these ornaments have the utmost sentimental value and significance, because they are the physical remnants of generations of their ancestors hard work or success. what these people are wearing is not just their life savings, but also their family history and treasure. this culture has been around for millenia - archeological finds from the 1st century AD in the khampa area unearthed ornaments that are essentially the same in design and materials as today's are. there are also beliefs that the stones provide good luck and protection to disease. dyed red coral is the most sought after stone, but interestingly tibet is very very far from any oceans - all the coral is imported by traders! Religious symbols from Tibetan Buddhism frequency form the designs of pieces, however archeological finds show that the role of ornaments in Tibetan society and peoples' lives long predate the arrival of Buddhism in Tibet. Indeed the beliefs of spiritual protection being provided by coral, amber and turquoise probably originate from the ancient shamanic Bon religion. ANOTHER PHOTO of her is below...
