"Expectation...quickens desire, while possession deadens it." Hannah More
The Tlingits have been in southeastern Alaska for over 10,000 years. They are a people who live in the thin strip between the mountains and the sea, and take their living from the sea.
To show their wealth, Tlingit nobles would host a Potlatch - a great gathering of hundreds of people from all over the area. These poeople wouild all be fed and entertained. These nobles would also wear medallions similar to our Tlingit Talisman in an effort to show their wealth.
Our Tlingit Talisman is made with 1000 year old Light Crystalline (translucent) Fossil Walrus Ivory set between two pieces of African Blackwood taken from sustainable forests. 1 inch high, 1 1/8 inch wide. A handsome piece you will love to wear!
Complete with Sterling Silver chain.
