A Bronze Age Pendant Fibula
This Bronze Age adornment is constructed from a double spiral with central loop from which hangs a single globular pendant.
Length as displayed 20 cm ( 8 in )
Although very little art from the European Bronze Age survives, this gives us an idea of the motifs which are likely to be found on other artefacts, maybe the spiral was carved into wooden bowls and pressed into pottery. This double spiral is certainly amongst the oldest of designs from ancient Europe and is found in the Neolithic period which preceded the Bronze Age. It is likely that this spiral motif had ritualistic significance and indeed it is found in primitive cultures elsewhere in the world.
Condition: Excellent unrestored condition, mounted on a contemporary bronze stand
