A large antique amulet, picturing Lord Ganesha and Goddess Parvati, hangs from muted clay color hand braided cotton cords. Flanked by six handmade silver beads from Africa. 

The central amulet is from India and was made from coin silver, dating to the 1940's. It has a patina of sindoor residue, which is the reddish orange powder made from tumeric that is used in ceremonies. 

Ganesha (seated on left of amulet) is the beloved Hindu God with the head of an elephant. He is a child of Shiva and Parvati. Lord Ganesha represents the call to spiritual power. He is revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom.

Parvati (seated on right of amulet) is the Hindu goddess of fertility, love and devotion; as well as of divine strength and power. She is the mother of Ganesh and the mother goddess in Hinduism. She has many attributes and aspects, each with a different name, giving her over 100 names in regional Hindu stories of India. Along with Lakshmi (goddess of wealth and prosperity) and Saraswati (goddess of knowledge and learning), she forms the trinity of Hindu goddesses – the Tridevi.
