Its name derived from Kauri, who was the same as Kali Cunti, Yoni of the Universe, the cowrie shell everywhere represented the divine vulva and usually conveyed the idea of rebirth. Egyptians decorated sarcophagi with cowrie shells as a rebirth charm. Cowrie are still prized throughout the East for their supposed healing and regenerative powers. Cowrie necklaces are valued in India as amulets against the evil eye.
Moslem women believe cowries should be worn on the body during pregnancy. The Japanese keep cowries in wardrobe cabinets for luck.
