Druid’s sickle (silver) – one of a kind
There was one comic series that truly captured my heart as a kid – the French masterpiece, “Asterix,” created by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny. Some of the comics were even adapted into animated movies.
Transported to the year 50 BC, the narratives unfold in a Gaulish village nestled in the Armorica region (Brittany), now part of France. This particular village, defying the might of the Romans under Julius Caesar, becomes a symbol of resistance, fortified by a magical potion that endows its inhabitants with incredible strength and invincibility. The Gauls, particularly the central character Asterix, prove to be a constant thorn in the side of Julius Caesar, wreaking havoc on the Roman forces.
Asterix, despite his small stature, emerges as one of the cleverest Gauls, frequently embarking on adventures throughout the Roman Empire alongside his companion Obelix. Another vital character is Panoramix, the Druid responsible for brewing the magical potion. Known for his wisdom, Panoramix remains the only villager refraining from swearing and fighting. Yet, his character isn’t dull – he appreciates a good joke and supports the villagers in their clashes with the Romans.
Perhaps, in my childhood, a seed was planted through these stories, blossoming into my profound interest in Celtic cultures, like the Gauls. I’ve explored exhibitions showcasing Gaulic tribes in France, delved into their lifestyles, and, inevitably, channeled my passion into creating art inspired by Celtic cultures.
I’ve made this sterling silver pendant as a tribute to the revered fictional Druid Panoramix, as well as to all other Druids from both ancient and contemporary times.
This pendant is handcarved and casted, so each item is unique.
You can choose between a dark brown or black leather cord (1.5 mm thick).
Standard adjustable cord length is 70 cm. Do you want a longer or shorter cord with your pendant? Just let me know!
