This vintage Taxco sterling silver pin or pendant is made with turquoise chip inlay around an eagle or a hawk, depending on which culture you're from.

This bird image was found on Mayan glyphs and carvings. To the Mayan, it represented contemplative thinking which led to inner wisdom. Some archeologists believe that in ancient Mayan times this particular bird depiction may have actually originated as a type of hawk. Over time, it was transformed into an eagle by succeeding cultures. By the time this hawk image was adopted by the Aztecs, it had been transformed into an eagle (Cuauhtli) with quite a different meaning. For the Aztec, it was a sign that the individual should seize the day and take action, rather than waste time on reflection. So maybe the duality of Aztec - Mayan culture has much to offer from both views...you can contemplate first and then take action.

The pin measures 2 by 2 inches. While the pin gets its beautiful green color from the crushed turquoise stone, there are also copper rays inlaid along with the copper bird head. The spikes around the bird represent rays of the sun just as the eagle itself symbolized the sun. There's a small hole in the turquoise just under the head...a natural blip in the turquoise stone. The overall inlay is smooth and seamless.

The back of the pin has a secure rollover clasp and an attached bail so this can be worn as a pin or a pendant. Marked TAXCO - MEXICO 925 JPO (looks like) with the Eagle 3 mark. Pin weighs 24.8 grams.

Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1950s.
