additional information

Crafted in Sterling silver the word goumukhi means “in the shape of a cow’s mouth.” In certain fertility rituals, the goumukhi was used to carry and pour Ganges water over a representation of a lingam, but very few goumukhi objects survive today. The handle is in the form of the standing cobra, or ñaga.

This lot is over one hundred years old or National Art Treasure, cannot be exported out of India as per Antiques and Art Treasures Act, 1972.
