Pendant carved on limestone pebble. It’s inpired by  a celtic stone head from southwestern England (Original HERE). On the rear side the ogham inscription in gaelic language “I am your friend”.
“The Celts apparently regarded the head as the centre of spiritual power and attributed a protective function to representations of human heads in their art” Cit.

Pendente scolpito sulla ciottolo calcareo. E ‘ispirato da una testa di pietra celtico dal sud-ovest dell’Inghilterra (originale QUI). Sul retro la scritta Ogham in lingua gaelica “Io sono tuo amico“.
Sembra che i Celti considerassero la testa come il centro del potere spirituale e  attribuissero una funzione protettiva a raffigurazioni di teste umane nella loro arteCit.
