Zoroastrian Angel, 2017 Pendant by Sumner (Pan) Silverman.
A Zoroastrian Angel is a Holy Guardian Angel. Each person is accompanied by a guardian angel which acts as a guide throughout life.
Believed to be created as a gift workshop sponsored by Camp Oasis 47.
Master Jeweler Karen Christians founder of Camp Oasis 47 coordinated a series of brass pendants made by Sumner Silverman which were casted in Brass using lost wax investment and hand finished. The back is a maze puzzle outlining the Man Effigy. Guests would use 2 part epoxy and a colorant to fill the cavity, sand and then polish.
Master Jeweler Sumner (Pan) Silverman (1942-2020) created unique jewelry hand sculpted in wax and casted. His mastery of space and form is unparalleled. His work has been exhibited in museums and is featured in Karen Christians book, Jewelry of Burning Man. p16-p27
Thank you Sumner for sharing your amazing jewelry and your kind soul with us all.
