G A N E S H: Hand Painted Indian Glass & Silver Pendant
Ganesh is the elephant-headed Hindu God, and the remover of obstacles. He is much revered in Indian culture. This beautiful Ganesh is so intricately handpainted onto paper, and encased in a piece of glass on the front, and floral patterned Sterling Silver on the back. There are sparkling "jewels" adorning his crown, and the details in the painting make this truly a work of art.
This style of pendant comes from Rajasthan in North India. These pendants have always enchanted me. There's something quite magical and alluring about the scene that's captured below the glass. I feel like I want to jump inside, like Mary Poppins jumping through the painting on the sidewalk.
You will receive the exact pendant that you see in these pictures. It measures 2 7/8" in diameter, and is amazingly lightweight for its size. It has 2 loops at the top for stringing, that measure approx. 5mm.
I direct-import all of the items that I sell. My husband and I travel to India several times a year and hand-select all of our goods, directly at the source. It brings me great joy to share my findings with you here!
