The Pegasus for Divine Understanding pendant is designed by fantasy artist Briar, and it is part of the jewelry series Bestiary by Briar.

Pegasus, the winged horse, is one of the most well known creatures in Greek mythology. Pegasus was a child of the god Poseidon and the gorgon Medusa, and he was born from Medusa's blood when she was decapitated by the hero Perseus. A less known fact is that Pegasus is actually not a species, Pegasus is the name of a particular pterippus (plur. pterippi) which is the generic name of the species of winged horses. After a long life full of adventures, Pegasus was rewarded by the god Zeus who made him into a constellation of stars in the northern sky.

This Bestiary Pendant is made of silvery zinc alloy and accented with gold plate. The pendant comes with a chain and a satin pouch, with the pendant's meaning explained on an enclosed card. Approximate size: 50 mm wide and 50 mm high (approx. 2" x 2").

Originating in the ancient world, Bestiaries were made popular in the Middle Ages. Illustrated volumes described various real, or imaginary, animals, often having symbolic significance and accompanied by a moral lesson.
