Handcrafted from an antique intaglio from the 18th century, this talisman features an octopus – a symbol of protection and good luck.
In the Victorian era, sailors wore octopus medallions to ward off evil. Seamen understood the eerie magic of the octopus. Its black ink-jet expulsions and other-worldly appearance struck awe and terror in the observer, making it a great and powerful talisman.
The fine silver talisman is approximately 1” round and hangs hangs from an 24" stainless steel baby ball chain that closes with a ball chain connector clasp. Other types of chains are sold separately.
