Egyptian God Ra Pendant

A chunky, solid sterling silver pendant based on an image of the Egyptian god Ra, a man with the head of a falcon.

From the Wiki entry on Ra: “All forms of life were believed to have been created by Ra, who called each of them into existence by speaking their secret names. Alternatively humans were created from Ra’s tears and sweat, hence the Egyptians call themselves the “Cattle of Ra.” In the myth of the Celestial Cow it is recounted how mankind plotted against Ra and how he sent his eye as the goddess Sekhmet to punish them. When she became bloodthirsty she was pacified by mixing beer with red dye.”

  1. how big is the ra pendant, i’ve been to the other site that showed this size and another size. Will the loop the pendant has at the top is that big enough for a say 2-3mm figaro necklace or what have you?
