Description
Possessed of a primitive, abstract simplicity, this unusual amulet seems to transcend time. There is something primal and endlessly mysterious about it, as if even the culture that created it was looking to ancient prototypes whose roots had been forgotten. Its beauty affects us like that of the moon: ever changing, ever radiant, eternal and hypnotic. - (FZ.067)
