Inspirational object: LNS 1161 J is a pendant of Tavis (amulet) form, fabricated from gold; worked in the kundan technique and set with rubies. It dates from the 1st half of the 17th century in Deccan or Mughal India. Kundan is a uniquely Indian technique of joining hyper-purified gold in the form of foil, through pressure alone, to form a molecular bond at room temperature, obviating soldering.
