Part 1: 4.2 x 3.3 cm (1 5/8 x 1 5/16 in.); Part 2: 25.8 cm (10 3/16 in.)
Gift of Dr. Norman Zaworski in honor of Mr. and Mrs. William D. Wixom 1983.209
This pendant consists of two dome-shaped pieces of rock crystal, one of which has the design cut into its reverse. The subject is the Anastasis, which shows Christ entering the gates of Hell and releasing Old Testament figures said to have believed in his divinity before his birth. On the left, Christ (with a cross staff) reaches out to Adam, who kneels before him. Eve stands behind, also reaching out her hand. The chain may be of later date.
