This replica of a bronze plaque (10th-12th century) from the Hermitage collection makes an unusual pendant. The stylistic use of animals, in this case the figure of a panther, is the most distinctive artistic phenomenon of Eurasian art. Artisan jewelers of yesteryear created stylized renderings of animals on weapons, harnesses and clothing for decoration but also to ward off evil. In their own unique way, these images reflect the ideology of the peoples of Eurasia. Today you can enjoy a sense of history combined with perfection of form as encapsulated in this attractive pendant.
