The Moon Idol -- White Brass Pendant

The Moon Idol -- White Brass Pendant


It seems appropriate that this design came to me in a dream. As a Cancerian, I always had a special place in my heart for crustaceans, but what do these creatures mean to us, and why do they appear in mystical illustration, from Babylonian times to the modern day?

The symbol of lobster or crayfish with its claws in a prayer-like position, can be seen on the wheel of the ancient zodiac, but it is also on the tarot card of The Moon, often at the bottom of the card submerged in a dark ocean. It represents the deepest, most primordial level of the subconscious, the ancient truths that creep beneath deep dark waters of the psyche. I sought to design a necklace that embodied this mystery, both horrific and seductive.

Two mirrored claws form a crescent moon, and between them is the form of the lobster/crayfish. This element measures roughly 2.5 inches / 6.5 centimeters in length.

-Available in Rustic Bronze, Dark Bronze, or White Brass (pictured)
