Serpenti - Ancient Roman Circa 2nd-4th Century Bronze Serpent Amulet Pendant. This amazing pendant is crafted from bronze. Featuring an ancient Roman design,  wonderful detail and quality bronze work. The pendant displays a beautiful 'S' shape, with a snake face, mid-section, and tail. The bale is circular and substantial, which holds the dangling serpent  beautifully. This piece has lovely aged deep bronze patina. The snake pendant has been matched up to a contemporary black leather adjustable cord, with a secure lobster claw clasp. The softness of the cord protects the bale as it moves back and forth, when worn.  This pendant would make a perfect unique gift or wonderful addition to any early collection. 

Note: In Ancient Rome, there were different gods for every occasion. Snakes , often accompanying the Lares, are also symbols of good fortune and guardian deities that protect the home, shop, neighbourhood , or temple.  

The snake spirit animal relies on its surroundings and its vibrations and uses it as a compass to find its direction. It slithers on the earth and translates the energies from it. The meaning of the snake is also about transformation. It signifies rebirth and transmutation.
