Goddess Durga Amulet

Goddess Durga Amulet


This is a large antique silver amulet pendant worn chiefly in Rajasthan, India. The amulet pendant is in the round form (mandala). Circular forms repel evil spirits who dare not enter them.

The amulet has been hand beaten (marks slightly visible) from a high grade silver sheet to a slight convex, and die-stamped with a large bale and decorative unit added. It has an old style chased silver border pattern.

The subject of the amulet is "Goddess Durga" whose vehicle is a lion, within the shape of a five-sided, peaked pentagon form, which symbolizes a temple (mandir). Durga is also called Divine Mother, protects mankind from evil and misery, by destroying evil forces such as selfishness, jealousy, prejudice, hatred, anger, and ego.

The amulet has been strung on a new black Indian traditional handmade cotton thread cord with a slide bead to adjust from 71cm (28inches) to 45cm (18 inches). It has been silver tested for high grade.
