Stark and compelling, this artisan cast Longhorn skull charm is presented in raw golden brass. This piece captures the sharp meeting of light and shadow, and the hand of time as it changes us into something new. The moment is almost primal, and yet so deeply beautiful, it’s only fitting that the Longhorn Bull would be the subject.
Countless civilizations revered the symbol of the Bull and respected it’s earthly counterpart. From the Sumerians in 4000 B.C., to the Druids in the first century C.E., to modern day Hinduism and Astrology… Such a rich tapestry through time! But no one spoke the language of the bovine skull like the great Georgia O’Keefe. Describing her own fascination, she wrote “To me, bones are as beautiful as anything I know. They are strangely more living than the animals walking around. The bones seem to cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive in the desert even though it is vast and empty and untouchable.”
Is the Bull your spirit animal? Your patronus? Or maybe it’s your talisman for this stage of your journey? The Bull is one of the clearest symbols from the animal world. The Bull is enormous strength, enormous power, and the courage to wield them in both the physical and spiritual realms. With the Bull as your guide, you’ll have momentous events on your horizon.
This longhorn skull charm is best suited for a pendant or slider bracelet. The way the bail is set would make it a challenge to install as a “dangling” charm on a traditional charm bracelet. It measures approximately 1.25 inches long including the horns and weighs 5 grams. This piece is artisan cast in solid brass. It was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips were used.
