This is a sculpture, not designed to be worn. The figure is separate from the crystal base so you can put him anywhere. The crystal base itself is quite a find-- gorgeous clear points reminding me of the ice fields of the Tunnituarruk's homeland. According to Lois Sherr Dubin, North American Indian Jewelry and Adornment, the Tunnituarruk is an Inuit mythological creature. He is "a flying head with human hands and bird feet who taught throat singing [the Tunnituarruk's ordinary language] to the Inuit." I found the greenstone version in Dubin's book quite amazing, and this is my rendition. His head is a beautiful quartz phantom (quartz crystal with interesting inclusions). The hands and feet are cast in sterling and the bezel and figure are fabricated. He seems to want a hug. Won't you give him a home?
