Egyptian Winged Disk Pendant

Regular price $345.00 AUD Sale

The winged sun is one of the oldest Egyptian symbols. It is usually a symbol of royalty, divinity and power, and can represent the soul and its eternity. It is often placed in temples as a memento to the people of their eternal nature. During the Middle Kingdom it evolved into a symbol of protection and became a popular protective amulet during the Ptolemaic Period. Because of its solar reference, it has been connected with the sun god, Ra.

I made this necklace by drawing five different designs onto brass, copper and sterling silver, cutting them out by hand with a tiny saw, and riveting them together with sterling silver rivets. I then hung the piece on a 45cm sterling silver chain. I used a file to engrave the lines of the feathers on the wings.

You may choose between the small or large version of this piece:

Large has a wingspan of 9.5cm.

Small has a wingspan of 6cm.

The pendant comes hung on a 45cm sterling silver chain.

Please note that I use recycled oxidised copper, so with every piece I create the texture and colour will vary slightly to the photos you see here.

Your purchase will come carefully packaged in a gift box complete with wax seal.
