Wearing an amulet is a visible sign of a wearer’s devotion to a particular deity as the deity, pleased by this show of faith, will be more likely to comply with requests. The purpose of amulet containers is to protect and prolong the power of the objects they enclose, often paper amulets. Containers without visible access aren"t meant just to hold but also to seclude the objects from view. To allow others even visual contact can cause them to become ‘contaminated’ losing their power.
