Large Chakana Feather Hand-carved Sandalwood Pendant Necklace
The Chakana (or Inca Cross) symbolizes for Inca mythology what is known in other mythologies as the World Tree. The three levels of existence are Hana Pacha (the upper world inhabited by the superior gods), Kay Pacha, (the world of our everyday existence) and Ucu or Urin Pacha (the underworld inhabited by spirits of the dead, the ancestors, their overlords and various deities having close contact to the Earth plane). This pattern is very popular in the fashion world right now as the world is waking up to tribal traditions. It can be found on clothing, bags, hats and now on Feather Tribe's feathers! This design has served us very well and is truly representative of the feather tribe.
The large sized feather is 6.2 inches (16 cms) from the top to bottom and 1.25 inches wide (3 cms).
The feather is hand carved from Sandalwood, sustainably farmed and fair traded. The black Chakana pattern is inlaid with black wood resin. In Bali, the Sandalwood (Cendana) is also named the 'Holy Wood'. It is said to have magical properties giving the object real life and spirit. You can really feel the spirit of upliftment when you wear this special piece, as well as the fact that they smell AMAZING! The pendant comes with 1mm premium waxed polyester cord in black.
