Ikal Earrings

Regular price $110.00

Inspiration for the Ikal Earrings came from from the ceramic figures the Zenú tribe of Mesoamerica created to symbolize human and agricultural fertility. In the Zenú culture, women were the symbol of fertility, wisdom and respect. Female characters were frequently portrayed in clay and placed in the graves of the dead as a symbol of fertility. The presence of these statuettes in the grave symbolized conception and rebirth in the underworld, in the same way that seeds germinate and grow.
