Hyena SymbolismIndependence, communication, community. Hyena people tend to have a good sense of humor and do not take themselves too seriously. They like to be a part of a strong community but still maintain a personal, independent spirit. Unlike the spotted hyena, the striped hyena is a strong symbol of balancing the masculine and feminine, without any bias towards the feminine role. Hyena medicine teaches us balance, realizing our own powers, and being happy with what we are given; not wanting for what we do not have.
Tagua, or 'vegetable ivory' is a renewable resource from the rainforest, the natural seed product of large, native trees. Almost indistinguishable from true ivory, tagua is a durable, nearly rock-hard material.
Our pendants are individual works of art hand-finished by the artist herself. The shape, size and coloration of each tagua slice is unique, so they would vary from the example shown. Each pendant comes in its own gift box, making it a great gift for any Hyena lover.
