THE LION BRACELET
Inspired by middle and south Africa, this bracelet creates a strong contrast between black and gold color.
The history of using a depiction of a lion’s head in decorating goes back as far back as early Greece and ancient Egypt. Throughout history, a carved representation of a lion’s head has been used on furniture, as statues, as decorative accents, and in architecture.
The lion has symbolised many things in history. In ancient Egypt, the lion was always associated with water. Fountains and water spouts prominently featured lions, especially those found in classic temples or public gathering spots. Shipping yards and boats often had lion head symbols.
As the “king of beasts” a lion was meant to convey strength, courage, and power in early Rome. In the days of Caesar, it was common for military and political leaders to have a lion’s head on the front door as a door knocker. It also came to symbolize the fallen hero and was often used in cemeteries and on caskets. The statue of a lion was often used as the guardian of gates, temples, and buildings.
