This is an exquisite brass padlock with a set of keys in a dark patina finish depicting the Mythical Garuda worshipped by the temples found in the South of India.
In India and most of Southeast Asia the eagle symbolism is represented by Garuda, a large mythical bird with eagle-like features that appears in both Hindu and Buddhist mythology as the vahana (vehicle) of the Indian God Vishnu.
This vintage lock with the engraving of the Garuda in front and ancient Om inscriptions at the back of the lock displays the craftsmanship of the Indian artisans.
The padlock, sturdy and functional, comes with a set of 2 intricately hand crafted keys.
