Which other folk art motif can speak the loudest about tradition and symbolism that are inherent in them, than one of the most common and all-pervasive of them all- the 'matsya' (fish)?
Wear these dramatic earrings only if you are prepared to be stopped and asked about them every few minutes- for the 'matsya' is a real beauty. Spare elegance, contemporary aesthetic and exquisite attention to detail. A design that is at the same time very modern and yet timeless. And one with great poetic and cultural resonance.
Trivia: Did you know that fish in folk art is a common symbol of fertility, abundance, conjugal happiness, providence and a charm against the evil eye? Now you do!
Dimensions: 5.6 cms long and 2.1 cms at the widest. Push-post closure.
