This Goros sterling silver cross pendant has a golden eagle at it's center. Native Americans were deeply spiritual people and they communicated their history, thoughts, ideas and dreams from generation to generation through symbols - the cross and the eagle being one of the most revered ones. Throughout Goro's designs, these are a few of the constant elements he uses.
The cross was believed to symbolize the Native American conception of life, being separated into the underworld, middleworld (earth), and the heavens. It represented the forces that governed the universe, and the manners in which they worked. As such, the cross symbolized truth, wisdom, and knowledge.
The eagle was believed to symbolize honesty, truth, majesty, strength, courage, wisdom, power and freedom. Bird symbols are very special to the Native Americans, their ability to soar above the clouds, perhaps to the heavens, and their sense of freedom inspired many.
