Nina Berenato - Eland Horn Necklace
This necklace is inspired by the discovery of the Dutch who began to settle in southern Africa in the 17th century of a new tribe. They called the indigenous hunter-gatherers the San. Awareness of the special relationship between the San and one type of antelope, the eland, has been heightened by rock art research. The Drakensberg Mountains, in Lesotho, contain one of the greatest concentrations of prehistoric rock paintings in the world. The San have noted that when an eland is pursued, it sweats more than any animal; this sweat, like the sweat of a medicine man, is considered by the San to contain the highest power. This necklace comes on a 30 inch chain and hits mid-torso on most bodies.
