This superbly carved pendant captures the imagination with its fabulous display of dragon/woman/eagle symbology. Fantasy and powerful imagery combine here to create such a detailed and visual piece. On this piece the dragon wing shrouds the top corner and frames the woman and the eagle. Talons, teeth, scales, feathers and flowing hair are all deftly carved into such a small surface area whilst retaining a sense of proportion and space. The mammoth ivory is a wonderful coffee colour. The back solid silver scroll work is patterned into a sun emblem 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.
