This jubilant toggle pendant mammoth ivory polar bear necklace is the kind of art piece people will stop and talk to you about with its creative design and fine artisan craftsmanship.
In many Native traditions, the polar bear symbolizes introspection, solitude, and a unique connection with the dream world. Our designers sought to evoke this dreamy mood in our fossilized ivory polar bear pendant that dangles playfully from a gorgeous sterling silver rope chain. The interplay of fossilized mammoth ivory and silver in this piece creates a necklace with cool tones, a classic accent to your favorite neutral looks.
The swinging polar bear is accented with two sterling silver fish, creating a watery theme for this carved ivory pendant. The polar bear hunts on the ice, a form of water, and water is of course vital to the fish's survival. Water is traditionally associated with the realm of the emotions, the collective unconscious, and the psychic dimensions.
Water in its many states may represent different aspects. Stagnant water may represent stagnant emotions, flowing water the rivers of change. Frozen water may represent an emotionally suspended state or purity.
Our fossilized ivory polar bear is carved from mammoth tusk, which has lain in permafrost or the earth for millennia. At over 10,000 to 15,000 years old, this fossilized mammoth ivory tells the story of a bygone era when these now extinct creatures still roamed the earth. The polar bear himself is currently threatened and faces possible extinction, much like the great mammoths.
The length and dangling style of this mammoth ivory necklace make it the perfect layering piece that is guaranteed to delight bear lovers everywhere!
