"It was as if I had worked for years on the wrong side of a tapestry, learning accurately all of its lines and figures, yet always missing its color and sheen." Anna Louise Strong
This is a slightly smaller variant of our South Siberian Coast Amulet. It is similar to the one found along the southern Siberian Coastline, in a stone foundation about 3000 years old. The rare Fossil Walrus Ivory we used for this piece - Grey Crystalline With Weathered Black Edges - is 8000 years old. (It also comes in other colors and types of Fossil Ivory.) It is designed after an Amulet found in a Aleut Shaman woman's household in a dig on the western Aleutian Islands of Alaska, at about the 500 BC level. This pendant with its similar design to our southern Siberian Coast Amulet, is thought to have a similar purpose, and have come through the Chukchi peoples of Siberia, who traveled south through the Bering Sea in the course of their trade voyages. Both front and back of this Fossil Walrus Ivory are visible below the Sterling Silver bezel. Beads and swirls in applique on the bezel, as well as intertwined lines on the bail contribute to the intricacy. A provocative amulet pendant.
