Beautiful reproduction of an ancient petroglyph from the Valcamonica archaeological site located in the province of Brescia, Italy that I created from high fire clay.
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 1-7/8" long by 1-1/18" wide by 3/16" thick ( 47mm x 30mm x 5mm).
**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.**
THE Valcamonica petroglyphs
Valcamonica, situated in the Lombardy plain, has one of the world's greatest collections of prehistoric petroglyphs – more than 140,000 symbols and figures carved in the rock over a period of 8,000 years and depicting themes connected with agriculture, navigation, war and magic.
