Benevolent Winding Snake Pendant
Metals Type: Tibetan silver
Pendant Size: 51*21mm
When it comes to snakes, most people seem to have an innate fear of them. Maybe that’s why the source of evil in the Garden of Eden was a serpent.
But there are good snakes as well. Consider that the Hopi Indians in North American included snakes in their rituals asking the gods for fertile lands and good crops; and Africa, Mesopotamia and Iran all had cultures that at some point worshiped the benevolent powers of the snake.
This snake looks like a good snake to us, maybe because its body language is so non-threatening. It’s gracefully looped into a naturalistic diamond shape which is quite ornamental. Its scales too are decorative and simplified, with some antique blacking to accent them, as are its eyes.
