Slavic Tales - Leshy

Slavic Tales - Leshy


price: Sold
Bronze, Copper, Silver
7,9 cm


Beautifully detailed, sculptural pendant, handmade of bronze, copper, silver, adorned with peridots and sapphires. This pendant was inspired by Slavic folklore. Leszy/Leshy is a woodland spirit in Slavic mythology who protects wild animals and forests (also a bit of a trickster - misguiding people or helping them). He is roughly analogous to the Woodwose of Western Europe and the Basajaun of the Basque Country. I depicted him with his club - symbol of his lordship of the forest.

Pendant is 7,9 cm long and it comes with a strand of faceted olivines (circa 50 cm long). This piece won second place in prestigious Saul Bell Design Award competition in metal clay category. It was exhibited during a gala in Albuquerque and in Las Vegas. The pendant was also published in a competition's cataloque and in "The Crafts Report", March 2014. - Here you can see a short movie showing this piece - Here you can see all winning pieces, SBDA 2014 - A movie showing all the pieces and some fun facts about the winners :-)
