Baby Lion Cub Necklace
In the selva oscura -dark wood- Dante is confronted by a terrifying lion. His head held high, with a furious hunger, it seems as though the very air is trembling in fear of the wild beast. This encounter comes close to forcing Dante to turn away from the perilous journey. It is at this point that Virgil, his guide, appears to offer him counsel and companionship. Baby Leone necklace was crafted from an antique Venetian coin, recovered and restored with Alighieri wax. It is designed to be worn as a reminder to be courageous.
Baby Lion Cub is 24 karat gold-plated bronze.
Approx. 16" length.
Crafted in Alighieri's London studio, through the process of lost wax casting.
