Arrowheads have been found in archaeological excavations of ancient sites, where they were placed as protective offerings. Consecrated arrows were thought to possess the power to destroy an invisible enemy. To serve this function, an amulet in the form of an arrowhead was tied around the neck of the wearer. Simulated arrowheads retained the form of the original, functional one and were believed to be no less effective. As ideological arrowheads, they did not have to be made of the flint commonly used in making actual arrowheads. What mattered was that their arrowhead form be unequivocally recognizable to both humans and spirits. Sharpness became a visual metaphor implied by the form. Scale did not necessarily have to be realistic, and miniaturization or enlargement were both possible without any risk or loss in effectiveness.

In India, the ancient arrowhead form is said to represent the pipal tree leaf (Ficus religiosa) associated with both Hinduism and Buddhism, thus granting this shape a deeper mystical grounding, since it is none other than Lord Krishna who has identified himself with this tree:

"Amongst the trees, I am the Peepal" (Bhagavad Gita 10.26)

This necklace too is defined by the arrowheads dominating its lower part. However, this motif is tempered by the small bells attached to each of the arrowheads. These are known as ghungroos, much like those worn by Indian dancers. It is believed that the charming tinkle of these small ghungroo bells elicits an erotic response in men, and they are an integral part of many Indian ornaments.

The necklace comes with a pair of exactly matching earrings. It was created in the city of Jaipur, the capital city of the state of Rajasthan.

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
