This pendant features a very worn Lord Shiva. Known as "the auspicious one" and the Eternal Reality, Shiva is the god of destruction, but since every end has a new beginning he is also associated with transformation. He keeps the world in balance and protects the soul from pain and suffering that would be caused by a dysfunctional universe.
This amulet is really unique. Most of the detail has vanished from generations of wear and worship. Constant rubbing by fingers has left only the off center ghostly image of Shiva. Such an interesting piece!
This pendant was made in a dwelling shape and is made of of good coin silver (a traditional mixture of silver and other metals) and polishes very nicely. It has been stamped on a thin but sturdy sheet of coin silver. The bail is in excellent antique condition.
You will receive the piece shown. It has been strung on a strong, black woven cotton finished off with a adjustable knot for instant adornment.
This piece is indeed antique and it's condition reflects that. Worn edges and weathering are a product of time and use...not defects.
