The Cybele necklace features a first generation casting from Mon Coeur’s rare collection of intaglio impressions.   The plaster of Paris impressions were made from the first 400 pieces from, the avid art collector, Polish Prince Stanislaus Poniatowski 2,500 commissioned gem intaglios.     He lived in Rome between 1754 and 1833.   These miniature masterpieces are original art inspired by literature of Greek mythology of god, goddess, heroes, and heroines.

This impression collection was previous owned by UK General Sir Alexander Walker (1764-1831) and his son William Stuart Walker (1817-1896).    The collection was held in a small wooden curio case being admired by a select few.    

This sterling silver pendant of Cybele driving a chariot pulled by a pair of lions is set in a sterling silver frame accented with two 4 millimeters rose-cut Garnets.  The necklace is 18 inches long,  The flat link style chain and lobster clasp is sterling silver 925/1000th purity.    The sterling silver pendant is 2 1/4 inches long and 1 3/4 inches wide and 3.5 mm thick. 

Cybele cult was founded in pre-Bronze Age Phrygia, Anatolian Attributes:  Cybele a Virgin, Fertility Goddess, Gaia.     

The Greek association is with the goddess Rhea because she is the Mother of All:  gods, goddesses, mankind, and nature, too.   She is accompanied by lions often.   

The Roman associations are with Ceres the Kind Goddess of Agriculture, Grain and Motherly Love Relationships and Maia the Mother of Hermes creator of the flute for Apollo.
