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. These particular amulets come from the Indian states of Rajasthan and Gujarat and were made from the late 19th to early 20th centuries (making the newest pieces around 75 years old).

This pendant features the Sapta Matrikas (Seven Mothers). These seven goddesses Brahmani, Vaishnavi, Maheshvari, Indrani, Kaumari, Varahi, and Chamunda or Narasimhi are always depicted together and are known for assisting the goddess Devi in her fight with demons. The myth of the the Sapta Matrikas originated from the seven stars of the Pleiades and have a strong connection with nature and it's unpredictability.

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 bails are 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.
