I honestly have no idea what the symbol on the pendant means. What I do know is that the pendant gives off a sort of masculine feel so I went with that as inspiration. When the piece was finished I imagined a man of the praire wearing it. It's the first image that entered my mind.
I used real coyote claws for this piece. The pendant is made from clay, and the cords are made of cotton. No metal is present in this piece.
