This strikingly coloured pendant features a wolf/woman combination. Dreamlike, the womans hair is blown back and mingles with the shaggy coat of the wolf. Boldly the wolf is positioned atop the womans face and protectively has its large paws around its master. The expressions of each are masterfully captured, with both wolf and human conveying a noble and brave face. The mammoth ivory is a striking yellow/orange. 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.
