A striking and characterful pendant, inspired by Cycladic figurines, originally carved in marble, that were produced during the third millennium BC.
These elegant figures are remarkable for their abstract simplicity, believed to have inspired modern day artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore.
Cycladic art originates from the Cyclades, a group of islands in the southwestern Aegean, comprising some thirty small islands, including Naxos and Paros, which were known for the quality of their marble. The ancient Greeks called these islands the kyklades, imagining them as a circle (kyklos) around the sacred island of Delos, the site of the holiest sanctuary to Apollo and the island thought to be the birthplace of the god and his twin sister Artemis. Our collection of Cycladic figures are reproductions of originals in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens and in the the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens.
This jewellery collection comes to us from one of the foremost and most well-established silver jewellery manufacturers in Greece. We are proud to have been working with them for over a decade.
Shown here with our bronze Cycladic Keros torso.
