Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
Has left him taciturn—stands guard
At gate and stairhead. Silent, he awaits
The coin we drop into his dish, and then
Withdraws to contemplation—though his eye
Glides with a marvellous economy sideways
Towards the stair, in silent intimation
You may now descend. We do—and end up
In a corridor with no end in view: dead
Line the perspective left and right
Costumed for resurrection. The guidebook had not lied
Or tidied the sight away—and yet
Eight thousand said, unseen, could scarcely mean
The silence throughout this city of the dead,
Street on street of it calling into question
That solidity the embalmer would counterfeit.
Mob-cap, cape, lace, stole and cowl,
Frocked children still at play
In the Elysian fields of yesterday
Greet each morning with a morning face
Put on a century ago. Why are we here?
A cluster of hand-sculpted antique skulls by Ruphia (ruphia.etsy.com) stare out solemnly, while faceted black spinel, smooth onyx, faceted onyx, and ridged gunmetal findings draw the eyes upward. Gunmetal chain and accents.
The necklace measures 18" and has an extender at the clasp. The pendant is 1.5" wide and 2.25" high including the gemstone drops.
