Our Cucuteni silver goddess pendant takes an ancient clay figurine dating back over 5,000 years as its inspiration—an enigmatic hollowware piece from our silver goddess jewelry collection.
This holloware silver goddess pendant is inspired by an ancient civilization's art, re-imagined as a gorgeous pendant. The Cucuteni culture, considered the birth of European civilization, dates back over 5,000 years to the area of southeastern Europe. They were prolific pottery makers, sculptors, and artisans who employed a distinctive graphic decorative style that adorns their many artifacts.
This Cucuteni goddess pendant is based on both the front and back details of a Cucuteni clay figurine dating to between 4300 and 4200 B.C. in the area that is now northeast Romania. It is a decidedly feminine silhouette with carved patterns we believe symbolized and stimulated the process of becoming. The feminine silhouette dominates in the many Cucuteni ceramic figurines and sculpted works we have found from this time, indicating the culture's particular reverence for the feminine or goddess attributes.
Each piece of Zealandia silver goddess jewelry is unique, celebrating ancient cultures, beliefs, symbolic meanings, and beauty. Our Cucuteni goddess front and back detailed pendant makes a wonderful addition to your diverse jewelry collection!
