Price:1890.00 EUR

Material:Silver and Turquoise
Meaning:This splendid Necklace represents the traditional Zuni and Navajo motif of the pomegranate flowers, completed by the central 'Naja' pendant. The Naja was initially used by Navajo tribes as a decoration for the reins. It represents the crescent half moon and was popular amongst Phoenicians symbolizing of the God of Fertility, Astarte. When the Moors ruled over Spain, they adopted this symbol as a decoration for the reins of their horses, to protect both them and the knights from the 'evil's eye'. The Navajo received the idea of this symbol either directly from the Spanish conquerors or from other tribes who had contacts with the Europeans. They didn't give to it a particular spiritual or symbolic meaning, but they introduced it in a massive way in their culture considering it a basic element.
It comes with a pair of earrings, which completes the set: they are 3.5 x 2.0cm.
Country:North America
Length:68 cm
