Ariel Bird Goddess Disk Pendant in Sterling Silver by Peter Stone Spiritual Jewelry
The ancient Bird Goddess appears first in Paleolithic totemic carvings. By the beginning of agriculture in the Neolithic, Her worship achieved equivalent importance to the Great Earth Mother. Throughout classical antiquity She appeared linked to the worship of many important goddesses in the form of their sacred bird companion and alter-ego, e.g. Aphrodite's dove, Athena's owl, Saraswati's peacock. Her gift to the magickal arts was a form of divination called Ornithomancy.
Keeper of the powers of Air, She possesses multiple aspects: the Maiden whose singing brings the dawn, the Mother of Winds who hatches the Cosmic Egg and the dark-winged Crone who guides spirits of the newly dead into the heavenly afterlife.
Available in solid sterling silver or gold vermeil, this stunningly detailed pendant is 1 7/8 inches high with attached bail (about 1 inch wide).
