The Malia pendant Gold 14k

580.00 Inc. Vat

The Malia Pendant is a gold pendant found in a tomb in 1930 at Chrysolakkos, Malia, Crete.[1] It dates to the Minoan civilization, 1800-1650 BC.

The pendant takes the form of two insects, which are identical (mirror images) joined head-to-head with the tips of their abdomens almost touching in a symmetrical or heraldic arrangement. The insects’ wings spread backwards.

The Malia Pendant is on display at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, on the island of Crete in Greece. It is probably the single most famous piece of Minoan jewellery.
