Today we discuss the Lion Head Rings Meaning within the different eras. It is no secret that the body ornaments of animals have a special meaning.
1) the History of Animal Ornaments
In the past, people wore these objects before hunting to protect themselves. Throughout this period, objects for decorative purposes were made of trophies (bones or fangs of killed animals), in order to attribute merits to each owner. At that time, a man who wore the most teeth around his neck was considered the most powerful and courageous.
Over the years, the various animal-themed body accessories began to give more precise information about their wearer. However, depending on the geographical location the jewelry had a distinct meaning. In Europe, in the face of many upheavals and wars, people attributed little symbolism to these jewels, it was rather a question of material value. In Egypt, initially the jewels had a great material value. However, the symbols they represented were very important and they revealed which God the wearer worshiped and what he believed and honored.
