One of Rajasthan’s favorite deified folk heroes, Bhumiya Raj is always pictured on his trusty steed, lance in hand, symbolizing the beloved landlord / chieftain who, riding the perimeter of the village nightly, died in defense of his property (villagers and lands). Worn chiefly in western Rajasthan by Hindu Rajputs and Jats , the five-sided, peaked pentagon form symbolizes a temple and can serve as a traveling shrine.
A large antique 20K-22K Indian plaque amulet of Bhumiya Raj with a bezel-set orange glass stone that playfully interacts with the variegated shades of very "gemmy" faceted semi-transparent Mexican fire opal. Generous 18K accents. Pendant drop 2 1/4".
