Vintage Hanuman Rajasthani Pendant

This is a beautiful vintage amulet pendant of Hanuman, the celebrated celestial monkey chief, and an ardent devotee of Rama, a central character in the Indian epic Ramayana. Hanuman is depicted within the shape of a leaf of the sacred fig tree (Peepal) with a silver border and floral units added to cover the joints. Hanuman, the Monkey god, is the most popular form of Talisman for Luck, Health, and Good Fortune amongst the Hindus.

'Pathri' (as they are commonly known) pendants were originally made by the villagers of Rajasthan for their own use.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