Double Sided Wax Seal Necklace - "Wise As A Serpent / Innocent As A Dove"
Features the Latin words, SAPIENS SERPENS (Wise Serpent) with a snake on one side, and INGENUA COLUMBA (Innocent Dove) with a dove in flight on the other.
From the Bible, NIV translation, Matthew 10:16: “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” “Wise as a serpent and innocent as a dove” is a shortening of the verse, meant to encourage caution and shrewdness while tempering it with kindness and humility, leaving behind a self-serving agenda and moving forward with mature trust and healthy wariness.
Pendant measures approximately 1.2" tall by 0.5" wide, and is .925 sterling silver, nickel-free.
I purchased this for my son and he hasn't taken it off since Christmas!
Great quality pendant and chain. Also, loved the little paper boat that came with it
