Sapta Matrika Rajasthani Pendant

Amulet vintage pendant from the region of Shekhawat in Rajasthan is die stamped. The pendant is circular shaped with a silver border and floral units added to cover the joints. A group of Hindu goddesses, Brahmani, Vaishnavi, Maheshvari, Indrani, Kaumari, Varahi, Chamunda and Narasimhi are always depicted together. Since they are usually depicted as a heptad (group of seven) they are called Sapta Matrikas.

'Pathri' (as they are commonly known) pendants were originally made by the villagers of Rajasthan for their own use. They were worn by men and women and children in memory of their forefathers and as a protection against the evil forces. The villagers now sell these vintage pendants to buy new ones for themselves.

This pendant is provided with a complimentary leather or suede thread.
