This sterling silver pendant or amulet is worn chiefly in western Rajasthan. Depicted is a defied Bhumiya Raj hero, who died in defence of his property. The term bhumiya is from bhum, meaning "land". Trusted and feared, the spirits of these local heroes protect their community by nightly riding a horse around the village to dispel enemies or evil agents. This pendant is in great condition.
