Vintage Rajasthani Hoi Mata Pendant

Amulet vintage pendant from the region of Shekhawat in Rajasthan is die stamped to give it its splendid appearance. The pendant is circular shaped with a silver border and floral units added to cover the joints. It depicts a tribal Hoi Mata, who is one of the many mother Goddess forms worshiped throughout India, presiding over the well-being of the family. She is very often identified as a form of Shakti (Strength).

'Pathri' (as they are commonly known) pendants were originally made by the villagers of Rajasthan for their own use.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