Handcrafted from an antique intaglio made in Europe during the late 1700's to early 1800's, this wax seal charm features a Greek sphinx which a symbol of abundance, power, wisdom, mysteries, riddles, truth, unity, and secrets.
The Greek sphinx has the head of a lady, the wings of an eagle, the body and legs of a lioness. Sometimes it was portrayed with the body of a bull and the legs of a lion.
Legends state that when someone came upon a sphinx that person would be asked to answer a riddle. If the person solved the riddle they were allowed to pass. If they could not solve the riddle they would be devoured by the sphinx.
This fine silver charm is a 5/8" x 3/4" oval and hangs from an 18" stainless steel baby ball chain that closes with a ball chain connector clasp. Other types of chains are sold separately.
Handcrafted in my studio just outside of Houston, Texas each symbolic wax seal item from The Silver Acorn is hand-stamped in reclaimed fine silver or bronze and will be slightly different and uniquely yours.
