A series of pristine pearl drops grace the lower edge of the pendant, held in place by turquoise gems and silver loops emerging from miniscule black onyxes. The central figure is on a pedestal of lotus petals and leaves, and flanked by two dhoti-clad sakhas (playmates) with a garnet atop the head of each. This pendant is a fine piece of temple jewellery, a kind of ornamentation that has evolved in South India to adorn icons in the region's magnificent temples.
