1 1/4" DIA.
This amulet is based fairly closely on an argillite (carbonaceous shale) "birth charm" collected on Haida Gwaii in 1879 by Israel Powell. It depicts a woman in labor on a cedar bark mat with her head resting on a cedar bark pillow and a ceinture around her waist to constrict the upper abdomen and thus aid in the delivery.
