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.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
