A swimmingly delightful rare seahorse with his trident wax seal necklace pendant.
- description -
The seahorse, or sea dragon, from the genus Hippocampus, is a truly unusual fish! It swims upright, with its horse like head, jointed armor body and curly prehensile tail... which it uses to hold onto seaweed and coral.

In heraldry, the seahorse symbolizes power of the water and the trident symbolizes maritime dominion.
