Cast pendant carved by hand to resemble the ancient Uluk (or Ulu) knife. This was an extremely versatile cutting tool crafted by the Native Alaskan people over five thousand years ago. The knife was primarily used by Eskimo women for skinning and cleaning fish and has played an important role in the survival of the Arctic people. Blades were originally made of polished slate and given a bone, ivory or wood handle. The handles were often inscribed with distinctive designs or markings exclusive to the maker of the knife.
22k Matte Gold Plated pendant (approx sized 70 x 65 mm) hanging from a long vintage deadstock box chain.
