Description
The person who wore this exquisite pendant centuries ago sought protection from life’s unforeseen perils. With consumate skill, the head of a fierce crocodile has been carved onto a piece of pale green jade. Rows of pointed teeth are bared to frighten evil. Perhaps, as with the Egyptian crocodile God Sobek, this amulet was meant to prevent the bite of the reptile. Its magic shines across the centuries. In the modern world as throughout history, one can never be too careful; who knows what dangers might lurk in the shadows? With such an amulet as this, one certainly feels safer and more protected. L. 5.3cm(2 1/8IN) - (PF.1845)
