Antique Rider Necklace

148.00

Large silver antique amulet depicting a Rajasthani rider strung on hand braided organic cotton that has been naturally dyed with Cutch.

The rider shown on these old amulets were deified and considered heroes or protectorates of their villages. This amulet shows traces of bright vermillion pigment (sindoor) which was rubbed into the amulet during rituals and ceremonies. It is thought to bring good luck. 

Cutch is an extract that is made by boiling the heartwood of the Acacia Catechu, a tree native to India, Southeast Asia, and Peru. The liquid is dried and ground into a powder, which was used to dye the cotton fabric for this necklace.

The unbraided strips of cotton tied to the clasp are meant to hang at the back of your neck.

Approximate size of amulet is 1.25" x 1.75"

Loop is approximately 17.5"

White bronze clasp at neck with hand stamped Untold Imprint brass tag.

Will arrive packaged in a hand dyed muslin pouch.
