Item details

The Birdcage Vintage Style Carved Bone Pendant is sizeable at 55mm, and reminiscent of the type of jewelry worn in a bygone age.

Inspired by a piece that once would have been carved in ivory, its design has been made over to feature a Balinese cockerel waiting to be fed.

Though illegal since 1981, cockfighting is permissible for Hindu ceremonial purposes and thus is prevalent on the island.

You'll often see roosters housed in fancy cages, or being transported to the next fight in special woven baskets.

This lacy-looking pendant has a hole at the top through which you can attach your finding, and would look great on a strand of plain bone beads.

It would make a lovely piece of jewellery for a Mother's Day gift.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment if it it's possible and convenient for you.

You'll find other carved bone birds here -

If you love our feathered friends then you might like to visit or even volunteer on Nusa Penida, an small island just off Bali that's been transformed into a bird sanctuary that is pivotal in saving the critically endangered Bali Starling.

The sanctuary is run by the Balinese non-profit Friends of National Parks Foundation which also runs the Bali Wildlife Rescue Center in Tabanan, and works to preserve wildlife habitat in Kalimantan, Borneo.

You can also visit the Bali Bird Park, home to one of the world's finest collections of Indonesian birds.

The park is set in two hectares of landscaped botanical gardens, including more than 2000 tropical plants.

The Park plays a key role in protecting and conserving Indonesia’s endangered birdlife, including the Bali starling.

The word for bird in Bahasa Indonesia, the language of Indonesia, is 'burung'.

“Everybody's a bird, locked up in a pretty cage. Sometimes you fly to a slightly bigger one, but you never quite have the courage to abandon captivity completely.” ~ English illustrator, photographer, comic book artist, graphic designer, filmmaker and musician Dave McKean, Cages
