This carved ivory pendant is influenced by the natural eddies and patterns found in running water, and particularly by the eternal spiral motif that makes an appearance in many Zealandia designs. Here the spiral plays the part of central design element in gleaming sterling silver, the motif echoed in the spirals worked onto the silver bale.
The spiral, among the oldest shapes communicated visually by man, carries with it the significance of growth, evolution, fertility, and the regenerative life force. As a symbol, it is emblazoned deeply in our collective consciousness. Sit for a minute with a pen and paper and you may find yourself doodling spirals before too long!
The fossilized walrus tusk in this carved ivory pendant is between 500 and 3,000 years old. Fossilized walrus tusk spends most of its long life buried underground where minerals color it the range of gorgeous tawny hues that make this material so desirable in fine jewelry and hand crafted art works. It is an important cultural and indigenous economic resource to the Native peoples who gather it for carving, sale, and trade.
