Paolo Canevari continues his analysis of the iconography of power in this beautiful pendant necklace, which can also be worn as a bracelet. The official symbol of the City of Rome today, the She-Wolf has been venerated by Romans since the times of antiquity for her nurturing and protective powers. With the animal’s traditional representation of instinct, intelligence and value of interpersonal connections, Lupa Romana is an invitation to reflect on what these metaphysical qualities mean to us.
