Rustic Goddess Durga Rajasthani Pendant

Magnificent die stamped vintage pendant from the region of Shekhawat in Rajasthan. The amulet pendant is circular shaped which is known to repel evil spirits. The subject of the amulet is "Goddess Durga" whose vehicle is a lion. Durga is also called Divine Mother who protects mankind from evil and misery by destroying evil forces such as selfishness, jealousy, prejudice, hatred, anger, and ego.

'Pathri' (as they are commonly known) pendants were originally made by the villagers of Rajasthan for their own use.
