Wild boars have amazing bones. Sometimes they are just too big to work with, but there are times when the size is just right. I especially like the foot bones. Comprised of so many moving parts...carpals, metacapals and phalanges. These make for a distinct but familiar design.
The necklace measures 32" in a continuous design with no closure. The circular medallion of rose gold colored metal and red plastic measures 2 1/2". The matching earrings measure 3" including the finding.
Humans have been hunting boar for millennia, the earliest artistic depictions of such activities dating back to Paleolithic time.
Phalanges - plural for phalanx which is a Greek word for a group of soldiers in tight formation. This name as an anatonical term is credited as originating with Aristotle.
Carpals - Greek for wrist.
