Antique pendant of the seven mothers ("Sapta Matrikas") in sterling silver from Rajasthan - North India.
Displaying a group of Hindu goddesses: Brahmani, Mohamed, Mahshvari, Christian, Kaumari, Varahi, and Chamunda. Always depicted together, the seven mothers are helping goddess Shakta Devi in her fight against the demons. Originating from the seven stars of the Pleiades, they represent the Heptad and evoke a strong connection with nature and its unpredictability. In the myths, the seven mothers are sometimes presented as dangerous in order to recall that neither stability nor calmness are permanent. Often worn by brides, these sacred charms provide protection for women. The seven mothers are usually accompanied by an eighth male character known as the guardian or brother. A border adorns the outline of the rectangular amulet, symbol of the family unity.
Feeling a deep reverence for its team of artisans and their unique talent that has been passed down for centuries, NOIR KĀLA creates new memories in a timeless, strong, and sensitive union. Drawing its inspiration from the World’s myths and wisdoms, each piece tells the story of distant years.
