A symbol of Sikhism, a monotheist religion founded in India by the guru Nanak against the backdrop of the conflicting doctrines of Hinduism and Islam during the 16th and 17th centuries. Followers of this religion are known as Sikhs. It is the ninth religion in the world in terms of numbers of followers. It believes in the existence of one omnipotent God and recognizes the same celestial light over each person, independently of their condition. This symbol etched on the lithophane is made up of four arms, each one with its own meaning: Khanda: a straight double-edged sword that symbolizes knowledge of God. Kirpanes: two curved single-edge swords that represent political and spiritual sovereignty. Chakkar: a circular disc weapon symbolizing the Oneness of God.
