Seven Devis Amulet Rajasthani Pendant

Amulet vintage pendant from the region of Shekhawat in Rajasthan is die stamped. The pendant is circular shaped depicting a group of Hindu goddesses. Since they are usually depicted as a group of seven they are called Sapta Matrikas. They are described as assisting the great Shakta Devi (goddess) in her fight with demons. You will note that the last figure on the right has a different costume being the guardian and the eighth figure.

'Pathri' (as they are commonly known) pendants were originally made by the villagers of Rajasthan for their own use.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