The focal point of the rakhi is an Om which is carved out from a yellow metal piece. The body of the Om is filled with a dark red resin, which looks almost like black. Under the Om is a flute with a peacock feather, which is the symbol for Lord Krishna. There are beads that complete the design. The tying thread is red cotton and matches well with the overall design. Send this ethereal rakhi to India for your brother. The traditional Om symbol and the representation of Lord Krishna in the form of the flute are both considered auspicious.
