This piece was inspired by antique mourning jewelry and Modest Mussorgsky's "A Night On Bald Mountain". The first displayed as a compositional influence of the swaying skeletons in a banner and the latter of the symphonic poem based on Russian folklore which is broken into four parts:

1. Assembly of the witches
2. Satan's journey
3. Obscene praise of Satan
4. The Sabbath

Also seen in a segment of Walt Disney's 1940 'Fantasia' where the opening scene shows the devil raising the dead as the witches danse inside the barren mountain.

Available in Sterling silver, size 8.
