Description

An exquisite and rare collectible, this dancer's belt in brass is an old piece from North Karnataka. It would have been used in ritual dances by the Veerabhadra cult. Veerabhadra is a fearsome form of the Hindu God, Shiva, created when Daksha's daughter and Shiva's consort, Sati, self-immolated in the sacrificial fire. In the belt, some of the hanging brass trinkets are missing.
