Earliest Christians! The Coptic Egyptians were among the very first Christians, converted in the first century AD by Saint Mark, a disciple of Saint Peter and just one level of separation from Christ himself. Among their particular skills was the use of animal bone which was fashioned, often lathe turned, into a variety of objects. #679-681 are Coptic Egyptian bone pendants, worn by early Christian women and buried with them. 2 1/2" length. Hand fashioned in imitation of lathe turning. Particularly robust elegant form.
