This pendant is one of a series of unique works I created depicting variations of the Sri Yantra pattern.
The Sri Yantra is composed of nine interlocking triangles that radiate outwards from the centre point. This central point is considered to be the meeting place between the physical world and the source. Of the nine triangles, four point upwards representing Shakti (the masculine principle), while five point downwards representing Shakti (the feminine principle). Because of this, the Sri Yantra is believed to be a strong symbol for the union of the divine masculine and feminine, and a balance of the left and right aspects of the brain. The nine interlocking triangles form forty three small triangles each housing a presiding deity associated with particular aspects of existence.
The Sri Yantra is a powerful tool for meditation, prayer or concentration to help raise ones level of consciousness.
I handcut these layers of sterling silver sri yantra pattern and oxidised sterling silver backing. I cut them by hand using a tiny sawblade, and riveted them together with sterling silver rivets.
This pendant is 4.5cm in diameter and is hung on a 45cm sterling silver chain.
