Lamb necklace
« on: April 14, 2009, 07:43:22 am »
We used to have a thread about what we thought the lamb necklace might look like but it was culled in the last few board maintenance blocks. This was always a hard one to pin down. Feel free to bring in ideas or even links to sites that you think may be a good representation of the image. I found two.

The first is an amulet from around 1100 A.D. Found in Denmark, exact site unknown. The motif is a symbolic depiction of Christ as the Lamb of God:

           

I always thought it would be a good one minus the cross. The lamb is very stylized though and you wouldn't initally know it was a lamb unless you asked the wearer what it was...even then it's kind of iffy, but I like it a lot. In my mind's eye it's the closest to what I think Mercy wears.

The second is based from a sheep petroglyph found in Moab, Utah:

       

I'm just a fan of petroglyhs so I thought this was a nice one to bring in. Clean simple lines.

I imagined something like this except smaller, a little more delicate and without the horns  :D

Couldn't find a good semplance but if you take the detail of the one on the left and add the pose of the one on the right to it, then give it a longer neck and hanging ears you get the idea. :)

ooohhh!  H~S, those are EXACTLY what I imagined it to look like.  Just a simple lamb, kind of like the last one, 3D, but pretty simple.  Awesome web searching!

I always pictured her necklace as something like that.

Those last two are cute, but somehow... I guess I think of a religious symbol (barring such unusual ones as the Invisible Pink Unicorn and Spaghetti Monster) as more somber.  The one link has very realistic ones, to me, I like them, but since I think Mercy's is supposed to be stylized, I'd probably go with Gerd's choice as what I'm picturing for her.

Wait...you haven't seen this one! It kind of scares me a little.  ;D And it's the most expensive at $240 from Anomaly Jewelry




This one is nice as well...very stylized. Only $12 @ Country Silver They also have a nice one on a concho.

The first one in that post reminds me of the evil sheep gods made from cottage cheese and black olive skins in "The Actual Letters"!

That and the "tippety tap" bouncing gait it seems to have.

I could see that last one as her's very easily.
