This fantastic pendant incorporates three elements of wolf, woman and eagle at the base. Each of the faces have intricate expression and character and have been carved in full relief so that the faces wrap around the side of the ivory matrix. Dreamlike, the woman's hair streams into the shag of the wolf and combines seamlessly. The mammoth ivory is a wonderful coppery colour. The back solid silver scroll work is patterned and of high quality hand made construction. The bail is hinged. This is a one-off both in terms of the unique ivory colour and in the skill of the individual carving.
