0 in stock.

Heritage temple jewellery with the motif of  `Kirtimukha' (glory-face or grotesque-mask that wards off the evil) .This fierce-looking; swallowing monster face with huge fangs, and gaping-mouth head with its tongue sticking out is extensively used as a decorative motif surmounting the pinnacle; doorways of a temple or the image of a deity in south Indian architecture. According to mythology the Kirtimukha is created from the third-eye of Lord Shiva and is symbolic of the self-destructive nature of the unbridled ego-self in us.

In this necklace a vividly etched, hollow `chased' gold-dipped Sterling Silver (92.5%) pendant is woven into black cotton thread. It is paired with a pair of intricate motif earstuds that come with a push-back.
