The resourceful duck… a wonderfully rustic medieval duck wax seal pendant.
- description -
The duck, or teal, with a feather on the back of his head, striding to the left is surrounded by a Latin legend, in Lombardic script, that reads x PRU DLIVE which translates SUFFERED NEITHER PRUDENT and describes one with wisdom, insight, and knowledge using good judgement and making appropriate decisions in difficult situations.
- symbolism -
Ducks symbolize a person of many resources with the ability to deal with difficult or troublesome situations effectively because ducks can elude their enemies in many ways, either by flying, running, swimming or diving for cover. The feather on the back of the ducks head signifies willing obedience and serenity of mind.
