Great Wolf medallion. Double sided. Tin alloy and silvered. Size: 4.9 cm.
The wolf is a totem animal of the old Slavs, their mythical ancestor. It played a significant role in the Slavic mythology and folklore. The wolf was venerated and feared. For the Slavic people, wolves are tied up to protection rituals and ancestor worship, being a way to connect the solid reality of this world with the less solid – but no less real – realms of the Otherworld.
The inscription on the back says: "My brothers will recognize me, and we will praise Dazhbog, father of us all, the wolves!"
