Own a Piece of Ancient History!
Shumla Archaeological Center

June, 2017

Own A Piece of Ancient History
The "White Shaman" pendant designed by artist, Bill Worrell. 
Worrell has been creating art inspired by the rock art of the Lower Pecos for over 35 years. This special piece was inspired by the most recognizable figure in the 2,000 year old White Shaman Mural. 
 
"I owe my successful art career to the pictographs of the Lower Pecos River and to the Ancient Texans who created them. My own personal discovery of these pictographs occurred during a thrilling and terrifying canoe odyssey down the Lower Pecos River to Mexico in 1979.  Encountering these pictographs forever changed my life and the direction of my art." - Bill Worrell
This figure stands out on the panel because of it's bright white color - even after 2,000 years. It gave the mural it's name and has been identified by Carolyn Boyd in her book The White Shaman Mural: An Enduring Creation Narrative as a moon goddess.
The pendant is pure sterling silver, measuring 2.75" tall and 1.75" wide. It comes with the cord and is signed by the artist.
Here it is modeled by Carolyn Boyd.
