Pair of Guanacaste-Nicoya Jade Figure-Celt Pendants - PF.2911, Origin: Western Costa Rica, Circa: 100 AD to 500 AD, Dimensions: 6" (15.2cm) high, Collection: Pre-Columbia, Style: Guanacaste-Nicoya, Medium: Jade. This beautifully carved pair of jade pendants represents two solemn anthropomorphic figures, which elude a graceful timelessness. The smoothly carved and polished surface of the pair of jade pendants indicates a fine craftsmanship and a religious effort to create the set of magical pendants. This unique set of pendants shows two figures skillfully carved from one jade. One figure representing a male and the other representing a female, the pair of pendants is a source of spiritual strength that originates from both genders. Worn by chieftains and shamans during ritualistic ceremonies, the vibrant power and magic of the jade pendants were applied to bring prosperity and abundance. Perhaps the pair of pendants of both genders signified fertility and strength of female and male genders. Such precious amulets also indicated rank and authority of chieftains who wore the prized pendants. The mesmerizing quality that feels poignant and hypnotizing surrounds the pair of pendants of both genders. Perhaps such mystical qualities gave the wearer of the pendants a sense of strength and power of each gender. Even across the obstacles of time and culture, these finely carved jade amulets' grace and power are evident today.
