Description
In ancient South America, amulets depicting strange deities and fantastic beasts were worn as protection against the unknown evils of the world. This golden talisman depicts a male god with a powerful human body and a snarling animal face. He seems to be warning evil to keep its distance. Though we cannot be sure if this pendant kept its original owner safe, there is no denying its visual power. He radiates an aura of ancient magic that is much greater than his acutal size. - (FJ.3985)
