This pendant features fossilized walrus tusk and intricate sterling silver accents that beautifully capture the timeless and symbolic wise owl.
The owl enjoys a rich and varied mythology. A specific breed of owl, Athene noctua, is said to have been the Greek goddess Athena’s mascot thanks to its wisdom and serious demeanor. The owl has long been associated with wisdom, and also with prophecy, protection, shamanic powers, and, of course, with the mysteries of the night. This fossil walrus and sterling silver owl pendant highlights the owl’s natural beauty and distinctive head.
The Zuni tribe believed that an owl feather placed near a sleeping baby would help him slumber safely through the night. The owl is nocturnal, hunting its prey with an uncanny stealth and vision. An owl’s eyes are tubular rather than eyeball-shaped, making them effectively like a pair of phenomenal night-vision binoculars. Its feathers are velvety soft, and they slip past one another during flight, which makes the owl’s approach almost silent.
The sterling silver owl pendant’s body is hand carved from ancient mammoth ivory. This unique and precious material has lain in the earth or permafrost for many millennia. It comes to us colored a creamy hue from its long buried life, and is a reminder of a bygone era when these wondrous animals still roamed the earth.
Mammoth ivory is particular valued among the artisans who work with this fine material for its quality and touch of antiquity.
This pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver 1.1mm box with with a secure sterling silver lobster clasp.
This pendant is 1 1/8" wide x 2" tall (approx)
