Since the beginning, cultures around the world have had the desire to posses a tangible and personal form of worship, and these plaque style amulets reflect that desire. This particular amulet comes from the Indian state of Rajasthan and was made between the late 19th to early 20th century.

This pendant features the deity Shiva. Known as "the auspicious one", Shiva is the god of destruction, but since every end has a new beginning he is also associated with transformation. The amulet was stamped and cut in the protective mandala shape. It is believed that this particular shape repels evil spirits from prevents them from harming the wearer. He is featured with his his trident (a representation of Shiva's ability to destroy evil and ignorance).

This pendant 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 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.
