This beautiful pendant features a striking owl carved in deep relief. The artist has captured the fearless stare of this powerful predator wonderfully. This striking gaze looks out beneath deeply feathered brow ridges and sweeps back into its ears. The ivory is a wonderful multi-coloured matrix with hints of green/blue coming through its coffee coloured base. 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.
