Description
In Ancient Italy, the wolf was legendary for its courage and nobility. It was a She-Wolf, after all, who had nursed the twins Romulus and Remus when they were abandoned in the forest. Throughout antiquity, a caged wolf was kept on the Capitoline hill in Rome, and the animal appears in sculpture and on coins. This bronze torque, beautifully patented, was shaped in the classical tradition. It combines a sensitive rendering after nature with a bold necklace shape to create an elegant work of art. To hold it today is to share our admiration with the person who wore it so long ago. - (FJ.0103)
