Jewellery - Necklace - Hand Painted Ganesha

$349.00

A beautiful hand painted pendant depicting Ganesha set in 92.5 silver. Paired with a necklace of tightly bound cotton thread and beads.

In Hinduism, Ganesha is seen as the remover of obstacles, bringing good luck and symbolizes wisdom and understanding.

The ancient tradition of miniature painting can be traced back to manuscripts recorded on narrow leaves in the the 9th or 10th century. The art began its evolution through the veins of the Imperial Court during the Mughal Empire, and was later carried forth by Rajputs who desired to be anonymous as painters. Throughout time, miniatures have been influenced by Indian literature and told the stories of texts, of the culture and have also been created as individual paintings.

This precious piece has a history and a story to tell. We like to think of it as adornment that whispers in its own voice.
