In the ancient world, pendants served multiple functions. In addition to their decorative appeal as jewelry, pendants could act as talismans to bring good luck and protect against illness and the evil eye. To hold such a piece in our hands today is to touch in an intimate way upon the life of the person who owned it long ago. We cannot help but wonder who that person was, what they thought, what mattered to them. This object sets the imagination upon an exciting journey of discovery. - (C.0403)
