Ra ~ Neter (Divine Nature Aspect) of the Sun, light, warmth and growth. Creator of the natural cycles, months, plants and animals. Depicted here in the form of a Falcon.
This pendant is one of a series of unique works I created depicting Egyptian Neters.
I handcut these four sterling silver and oxidised sterling silver layers by hand using a piercing saw and riveted them together. The central layer has an incredibly detailed handcut depiction of Seshat with a lotus. I set a beautiful piece of Malachite into the pendant, and hung a small handcut ankh detail on the back of the chain. I acquired the Malachite cabochon personally from stone carver Sadat Awyan in Cairo during my recent Egyptian adventure.
This piece is 5cm x 3.8cm, and comes on a 45cm sterling silver chain.
Your purchase will come carefully packaged in a gift box complete with wax seal.
