Native American Traditions

Swastika, The Oldest Known Symbol
The swastika, an ancient symbol, has been used for over 3,000 years, predating the ancient Egyptian symbol, the Ankh. Artifacts, pottery, and coins from ancient Troy show the swastika as a commonly used symbol as far back as 1000 BCE.

In Native American legend’s, the Thunderbird is portrayed as a powerful bird spirit. The Thunderbird petroglyph symbol has been found across Canada and the United States, similar figures have been found throughout Africa, Asia, and Europe.

From a Bryn Mawr estate. Look for more items, seen for the first time since 1920. Victorian jewelry, Native American trading beads and silverwork, and jewelry from the finest stores on the Main Line, PA. Everything sold as found. See images, ask questions. No returns.

Do not hesitate to ask questions. An informed shopper is a satisfied customer.
