This pendant is made using an antique wax seal of unknown origins, depicting a bull and human in greek mythology. Interpretations can show this to be Mithras sacrificing a bull, or Europa being carried across the water by Zeus.
Mithras’s most important mythic act was the slaying of a great bull, whose body and blood became the source of all life on earth. Images of Mithras usually show him killing a bull. Such sacrifices were central to his worship, which took place in shrines located in caves or cavelike buildings in honor of the god’s subterranean origins.
This seal is made out of pure copper and hand stamped with a greek mythology wax seal.
Each seal is stamped, sanded, polished and oxidized for an antique look. Because they are hand-stamped individually and made to order, these pendants are truly unique, and no two pendants are the same (unlike pendants cast from a mold).
DIMENSIONS: The pendant is slightly larger about 1″ across.
This listing is for the PENDANT ONLY and does not necessarily include a chain.
CHAIN LENGTH: If you choose to purchase the pendant on a chain, the chain is sterling silver, brass, gold plated brass or copper, 16″ long or 18″ long.
