I made this necklace as a reference to the famous Rainbow Snake/ Rainbow Serpent - a very important deity in the mythology of Australian Aboriginals.
The necklace closes at the front with a smaller size toggle clasp. The circular catch has a curled snake pendant attached, the opposite site with the toggle bar lines up sparkly crystals in all 7 colours of the rainbow.
The elongated cable chain measures 54cm in length, the pendant is 3cm long.
All metal is antique bronze finished.
- The Rainbow Snake is a common deity in the mythology and a common motif in the art of Aboriginal Australia. It is named for the obvious identification between the shape of a rainbow and the shape of a snake. When the rainbow is seen in the sky, it is said to be the Rainbow Serpent moving from one waterhole to another, and the divine concept explained why some waterholes never dried up when drought struck. The rainbow snake is one of the most common and well known aboriginal stories, very important to their society. The Rainbow Serpent is one of the oldest continuing religious beliefs in the world and continues to be a cultural influence today.
