It's theorised that the original artefact was a helmet crest. The national museum of Scotland has recently came to the conclusion that the piece is Pictish, and there are several other finds from the same graves that are likely to be Pictish in origin.
Hand sculpted from a block of wax and cast in bronze using the lost wax method.
There's an option for my replica to be made to have fittings for rivetting onto a helmet with four copper or brass rivets. :)
Please note, you are buying a handmade piece of jewellery and we will not always have it in stock and I may require some time to make it!
If you want this in other materials such as gold please email me for a quote at firstname.lastname@example.org We are always open to alter and change any of our pieces to suit your tastes. In the listing the piece might look darker than the finished piece. We artificially darken our silver pieces with liver of sulfur so that the details will show up in photographs but as standard the finished piece will be shiny and polished. If you'd prefer us to darken it then please let us know and we will happily do this for you.
This has been carved by myself from wax and then cast in high quality by Jewellery Casting Scotland and finished with a mixture of power tools and traditional hand tools like files and saws.
All our packaging is 100% paper. No plastic at all.
