Originally from Rajasthan, North India, this minimalist oval shaped pendant features the God Shiva.
The amulet is oval shaped to protect the wearer against the evil eye and against evil spirits who dare not enter.
Shiva, the God of destruction and creation, is associated with the phenomenon of transformation. He keeps the world in balance while protecting the soul from the suffering caused by an illusionary world. Some consider Shiva to be one of the five primary forms of God, while others regard him as the supreme God. Armed with his trident, he destroys evil and ignorance. Also known as the king of dance (Nataraja), he performs the dance of destruction to rebuild a world free of illusion.
