Product Description
The Opercularella pendant is based on a tile from Alim Pasht-Han's ARURA vase created for the Leuchtenburg Porzellanwelten (Porcelain Worlds) museum in Seitenroda, Germany. Inspired by the drawings of Ernst Haeckel, the porcelain painting depicts the polypoid stage of a Hydrozoan marine animal.These strange animals form colonies connected by long tubes. The different shapes on the stalks represent different biological functions of the animal including feeding, mating and incubating young. Many hydrozoans also have a free-swimming medusoid life stage which resembles a small jellyfish.

I created the Opercularella pendant at the request of the Leuchtenburg to help promote the collections of the museum. The pendant is available at the museum shop, and here at Shapeways.

If you would like to purchase a chain along with this pendant, please click on the "ADD A CHAIN" button below the material dropdown. The loop to insert the chain has an internal diameter of 5mm.
