Vintage Lakshmi Rajasthani Pendant

Beautiful silver die-stamped amulet pendant worn by the tribal people of Shekhawat in Rajasthan. The amulet pendant is in the shape of a circular form which repels evil spirits who dare not enter them. The image is of Duo Lakshmi (Laxmi) holding arms, within the five sided shape of a temple. Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity.

'Pathri' (as they are commonly known) pendants were originally made by the villagers of Rajasthan for their own use.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