Sterling silver, handmade necklace featuring the image of a wild boar. Boars are the symbol of bravery and perseverance.
This pendant was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...
This wax seal image is of a wild boar. The Boar is considered the champion amongst wild beasts. He encounters enemies with nobility and courage and has thus come to signify the traits of bravery and perseverance.
The boar is a fierce combatant when at bay, and never ceases to resist, even when cornered. This device was given to only those considered fierce warriors.
This pendant measures approx. 10mm across. This is approximate however because each piece is made individual by hand and therefore may be slightly different.
