Scientia Vita Moth Necklace by Amano Trading.
The scientia vita series is inspired by the Renaissance tradition of the curiosity cabinet. These cabinets were used to contain collections of plants, insects, rocks, taxidermy animals or anything we would now consider natural history. They were an early attempt by Europeans to systematically and scientifically catalog the natural world. They were especially popular after the discovery of the new world and would often contain exotic specimens brought back from the Americas.
The necklace is made of antiqued brass, the pendant measures 1.75 x 1.25, it hangs on 16" beaded chain with a 4" extender.
Assembled in Sonoma, CA.
