A exquisite artisan handcrafted 925 sterling silver scroll locket. Designed after the Parasol or Chatti. The perfect locket to keep your most precious keepsake close to your heart. Engraved with the sacred Lotus Flower on the backside.
Traditionally, scroll lockets were made to be a special kind of pendant or medallion that could keep your most precious of quotes, texts and even images close to your heart. In Buddhism, monks and practitioners of Buddhism used scroll lockets to hold sacred mantras and sutras written on small scrolls and even small images of Buddhist deities.
The Parasol or Chattri is an umbrella that symbolizes the protection of the followers of Buddhism against the "Heat of Defilement". And it also symbolizes royalty. It represents the dome of the sky, which is casted over the entire earth. And so when an umbrella is carried above a person or appears above an image of a deity, it indicates that this person or deity is protected and is of royalty. The parasol or Chattri signifies protection from earthly emotions such as suffering and desire as well.
