Pretty sure this is just a shield and nothing to do with dark skin.


As a dravidian myself, i can confirm that we are as black as the shield shown. And if u were really curious about the dots its called ayudha eruthu (pronounce r like an american r), the dots are in our alphabet and the golden tip symbolises god shiva as cholas are shaivites


What does that mean?

Name of legacy letter in Tamil language which is in the form of 3 dots in arranged in triangle shape. The name ayudha ezuthu means weaponized letter
