This statement necklace features a tiny Abalone pocket knife, and hangs from a Silver plated chain. The knife is accompanied by a replica vintage Greek Tetradrachm coin. Featuring an owl and olive branch on one side, and the Greek Goddess Athena on the reverse. This piece is as delicate as it is edgy, and sure to be a conversation starter.
Athena was the Goddess of wisdom and war. The owl is considered Athena's sacred animal, the source of her wisdom and judgment. It is telling, too, that the animal most associated with her has such exceptional vision, symbolizing Athena's ability to "see" when others cannot. The olive tree was the symbol of Athens, the city for which Athena was a protector.
