A beautiful rendition of the ancient 1000-year-old petroglyph of a solar eclipse discovered in Chaco Canyon (N. Mexico).
I formed this clay pendant, carved the ancient petroglyph then fired it for several hours in the kiln. I then glazed the pendant and back again in the kiln for another long firing.
Threaded onto a strong 2mm black Hemp cord. The pendant measures a little over 1-3/4" long by 1-1/4" wide by 3/16" thick ( 45mm x 30mm x 5mm) and is topped with a copper-plated pewter bead.
**Only one model has been made, unique creation, what you see in the photo is what you will receive. Colour will vary in intensity from PC monitor to smartphone screen.**
Chaco Canyon Solar petroglyph:
The rock carving was first discovered in 1992 by Malville and then-Fort Lewis Professor James Judge and was carved by early Pueblo people. Chaco Canyon, a centre of Pueblo culture in the Southwest a thousand years ago, is believed by archaeologists to have been populated by several thousand people and held political sway over an area twice the size of Ohio.
