A hand-painted silver pendant necklace inspired by a Mughal painting of an Indian elephant.

This necklace forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic.

The necklace is hand-made in India from sterling silver. The pendant features a hand-painted paper image of a decorative Indian elephant, which is held in place behind a glass window.

Elephants are highly venerated animals, especially in India, where they are considered sacred to the Hindu god Ganesh. Heavily decorated elephants feature in the celebrations for Indian festivals such as Mysore Dasara and Thrissur Pooram. Elephants traditionally represent wisdom, strength and family. 

A unique and beautiful gift for a lover of Indian art.
