Sisiutl pendant (Sea Serpent) by Norm Seaweed

Sterling silver, superb craftsmanship - just a VERY impressive piece - I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Measurements: 4" x 2" (10 x 5 cm)

Weight: 22 gr. (chain is not included)

Meaning: The Sisiutl is a symbol for healing power and magic. It's closely associated with war and strength, the Sisiutl is known to be invulnerable and to provide protection from harm. The Sisiutl is one of the most powerful crests, and mythological creatures in the mythology of the Kwakwaka'wakw, Nuu-chah-nulth and various other Tribes. Sisiutl are frequently depicted as a two headed sea serpent or snake with a human-like head in the middle of the body.

It is so powerful, that contact or even seeing one, was believed to cause sickness or death. According to legend, looking at the sisiutl can turn a person into stone. However, if one kills a Sisiutl, it has healing powers.
