Sari silk scarf with swastika and kalash (irregular)
A scarf made from sari silk, in a lovely reddish gold weave with a pattern of swastikas and kalash. It measures 168 cm long by 37 cm wide, and is finished on the edges in pink overlock stitching.
It has a very small hole in it at about the halfway point, and thus i am discounting the regular price to reflect that, but it is virtually invisible when worn.
• Swastika: In South Asia, the swastika is omnipresent as a symbol of wealth and good fortune. It is used as a religious symbol in Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism, which can be traced to pre-modern traditions. In the Sinosphere, countries and regions that were historically influenced by the culture of China, such as Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Vietnam, Singapore and China itself, the symbol is most commonly associated with Buddhism. They are commonly found in Buddhist temples, religious artifacts, texts related to Buddhism and schools founded by Buddhist religious groups.
