Able to breath out of water, and attributed with mythical powers, the mudfish has been an icon of wealth and divine power in Africa. It's ability to move across land and water symbolized the mudfish's power to move between two realms -- life and death, earthly and spiritual, thus becoming a symbol of the king's divinity. It may bestow great power and wealth upon you, or it may just make you look divine. Fair trade, so you can feel divine about wearing it. Made by a woman owned metal casting workshop in Cape Town, South Africa in the style of the lost wax bronze castings of the Asantes of West Africa from the 14th and 15th centuries. Two inch pendant on a coiled metal cord.
