coq-de-mer as yoni

South-India, old
high: 26 cm.

these coq-de-mer originate from the Seychelles, and by chance some are found or in the Indian Ocean or on the beaches of Southern India. There they are venerated as Swayambhu (originated from itself), and as the female element (Yoni).

Nice piece and nowadays quite rare.

ex private collection Amsterdam.
