Carved Dancer Pendant
We've captured this elegant dancer in mid-spin, with her flowing skirt gathered around her legs and her arms raised in graceful expression. Dancing is a great exercise, for the body and the mind. Throughout the ages, dance has played an important role in cultural and religious ceremonies and is a universal language that crosses cultures. People dance to tell stories, they dance to express emotions, and they dance to carry on traditions. Martha Graham surmised, "Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body."
The pendant features a delicate dancer, hand-carved from fossilized mammoth ivory, which has lain buried in the permafrost for tens of thousands of years. Fossilized mammoth ivory is a finite material and prized for its soft cream color that makes it ideal for fine jewelry.
