sterling silver necklace
About interstellar pursuits
For those who chase their dreams
Somewhere in the blazing shroud of aurora
six hooves thunder in choir
through the dark pastures and fiery dust
the mighty stellar elk gallops forevermore
Inspired by the constellation myth of hunting the six-legged prime elk, who could gallop in such great speed that it was nearly impossible to reach. But one hunter catches the elk, and cuts two of his limbs off so that the elk would be easier to hunt later on. It’s said that you can spot the elk’s antlers in Cassiopeia and its body in Perseus; the eclipsing binary star Algol depicts the missing limbs.
In this necklace the elk has all its original six limbs: two cloven hooves in each piece.
