What does this mean? Oh god PLEASE HELP ME

A while ago now recieved a gift from a good friend of mine. I am obsessed with werewolves, and always have been, and for a long time have wanted something wolf related, say a fang or a claw or something. I have never bought anything, for fear of accidentally supporting the trade in illegal animal parts first hand. But this is (kind of) different.

My friend got it from his brother, who won it on an auction, from a man who found it on a small market stall in Surin, Thailand. I am very fond of it. It is a cut of wolf bone, made into a pendant. I tend to wear it on an almost daily basis.

It has some symbols carved into it. I am would very much like to know what they mean. I did hold out for a while and not wear it because I didn't know what it meant, but I caved after a while.

I do not know what language it is in. I do not know if it is a language, or runes, or pictures, or what. They could be for protection, luck, lycanthropy, or they could be a proverb. Hell they could be a curse for all I know. I have asked many people, and have not come much closer to discovering what it means. Apparantly, it looks like it is not Thai. Though it is similar to their alphabet.

Here are some photos of it.

And because the symbols might be hard to see, I oh so skillfully (not) reproduced them in paint.

I believe that the symbols are the same on each side, and only differ slightly because of bad handwriting or something.

Now, can anyone help me? Even a little bit? Anything would be good...what language it might be, or is definately not, has anyone seen anything like this before, anything at all. Does anyone know anyone who I can email who deals in this kind of stuff? I am quite desparate to find out the meanings, as I have had it for a long time now.

I have asked everyone...I mean everyone. I have asked all my friends. All my family. I have emailed the person it was bought from. I have emailed several people who specialise in occult and individual artifacts too. I have also asked almost any random person I am introduced to. And I have also posted this all over the internet, I mean, aaalll over, asking for help.

I am still firmly at square one.

It is taunting me, that is what it is doing. It is my one way ticket to insanity. It thwarts me on a daily basis.

People tell me to go look on Thai alphabet websites, which although I appreciate them responding, this is about as useful as a cat up a tree. Please don't tell me to look at Thai sites, unless you know exactly what the symbols are. They might not even be Thai.

I now have this feeling, that it is actually gibberish. I think that it was done by some sadistic bastard, sitting there, scratching random lines into the bone, chuckling to himself; "Hah hah! Those stupid foriegners are going to run themselves ragged, like decapitated chickens, trying to figure out what my completely random and meaningless scratches mean! Ah ha ha ha haaaa!" While his fez hat wobbles on his head while he laughs himself silly....

I don't know why he is wearing a fez hat. He just is.

If anyone has any ideas, I would be extremely grateful. Actually no I wouldn't, if anyone can actually tell me what these mean, or what language it is, I will throw off my anti religion status, and pronounce you my new God. I may even give you a shrine. No no, I mean it. I will be your loyal follower.

The bastard has made me waste, well, months of my life, that I could have spent doing things other then waving a wolf bone pendant in random people's faces going "Hi! You don't know me. But do you know what this means?"


Pleeaase heeeelllpp meeeee!!

You know apparantly, there are tribes out there, which are made up of, like, only twenty people, and they have their very own language. A unique language and culture all of their very own, for only a few dozen people. Apparantly there are a lot of these small tribes scattered across the world. And they are dying out slowly because of outside interference.

I suspect my pendant has been inscribed by one of these small tribes made up of only twenty people, and that tribe, has since died out. Thus radically altering my chances of ever discovering it's true meaning, from insanely slim, to completely impossible.

I - I think I want to cry now.

Have you tried meditating on it and seeing if any insights come to you? Sometimes your intuition can tell you more than's a very cool piece nonetheless. :)

Why no I haven't, but thank you for the input. I'm not much of a meditative person, I am far too neurotic to calm down enough to achieve such a higher state! But I shall bear it in mind, it may be my last hope.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. :) Give it a try if all else fails, the piece itself will be able to tell you with it's own energy.

Hey, popped in via Nichole's blog. That's a beautiful piece and I don't think I can directly help you. However, I will keep my eyes and ears open and if I ever do get a lead, I'll let you know. Arielle has a decent suggestion too.

Good Luck.

It is so clearly someone in actual fact thinking "Damn shallow foreigners won't care what any inscriptions mean so I'm just going to carve at random instead of keep a beautiful piece meanginfull. That will teach them. Curse them all. Now there is an idea, this will be my personal curse instead.......*Mumbles some words...* CURSE. There we have it. Dumb foreigners."

I figurededededed it out all by my self i dids.
