925 Sterling Silver Necklace by Oberon Zell’s Mythic Images
Epona, the White Horse of Uffington, is a representation of the beloved horse goddess of the ancient Celtic people. The original is a truly gigantic stylized figure of a horse cut into the chalk of the Berkshire Downs in Wiltshire, England. Dating from 1400 BCE, in the Bronze Age, the entire image can only be seen from a great distance or from the air. It is a beautiful image—so ancient it looks like a modern abstract art form. As our favorite fiction writer Terry Pratchett explains: “It’s not what a horse looks like; it’s what a horse is.”
Epona is the Gaulish name for this Goddess who has many other names and titles. The Welsh call her Rhiannon; the British form is Rigantona: Great Queen. She is a goddess of power, freedom, fertility, joy and abundance. Also associated with the Faery Queen, She is still celebrated in the Hobby Horse dancing at the turning of the seasons.
This beautiful pendant captures the fluidity of form of the original design and the linked legs allow the figure to move along with the person wearing it so that it appears to be galloping.
Available in Nebula, the wonderful new hypoallergenic metal. It is lightly hand painted with black in contrast to the bright metal, revealing the exquisite detail of the design.

In recent times, Oberon has been most recognized for his inordinately beautiful sculpture; The Millennial Gaia. But since the early 1960’s, Oberon has been one of “the” names most closely associated and respected with regards to the crystallization of the Neo-Pagan movement. In 1970 he formulated and published the preeminent “Gaia Thesis”.
A Transpersonal Psychologist, Shaman, Artist, Sculptor, International Lecturer and Teacher, Oberon has contributed much to the evolution of human consciousness.
