Musk Ox Spirit Pin
Pewter Jewelry, 2 1/4" x 1 1/4"
An animal of ancient origin, the Musk Ox is a survivor of the ice ages,The species evolved a circle defense; adults on outside and young calves protected within. It was almost hunted to extinction but today they roam their ancestral tundra home and number in the hundreds. Native knitters treasure their fur "qiviut" and make beautiful garments.
I designed these animal spirit pieces to honor the creatures that inhabit my adopted state, Alaska. The animals that call Alaska home have to endure all the seasonal changes from the sub-zero temperatures of our winters to the frenetic activity of our 24hr summer days.
-Matching earrings are available
-This pewter pin has two tack backs and military-style clasps (very secure). Because of this, it cannot not use our pin converters.
