Rebellion of the gentle soul by tishaia Rebellion of the gentle soul by tishaia
This is one, two-sided pendant.

I got captured by the story behind Anders/Justice and wanted to make something that would symbolize both his sides. What actually made me do this was the Codex entry about Anderfels. Let me quote:

"The Anderfels are a land of shocking extremes. It is the most desolate place in all the world, for two Blights have left great expanses of the steppes so completely devoid of life that corpses cannot even decay there--no insect or grub will ever reach them.

It is a land filled with wonders like the Merdaine, with its gigantic white statue of Our Lady carved into its face, her hands outstretched and bearing an eternal flame, or Weisshaupt Fortress, with its walls of living rock towering over the desolate plains below.

The Anders, too, are a people of extremes: The most devout priests and the most deadly soldiers, the poorest nation in the world and the most feared.

--From In Pursuit of Knowledge: Travels of a Chantry Scholar, by Brother Genitivi"

So, Anders already had two sides before the whole Justice thing. The Spirit only made them more obvious.

That's why this pendant is two sided.

Anders is a healer, a man with a kind heart and gentle soul who cares about others far more than about himself. On the gold, warm side there is a symbol of the Spirit Healer, and healing herbs. On the left there is Elfroot, (used to make various healing poultices), leaves of the Spindleweed (used to make potions like Life Ward Potion and Restoration Potion) on the right, and in the middle - Embrium with its distinctive red flowers.

Anders is also Justice, rebellious and angry about what is happening to the people in Thedas, ready to avenge their pain with violence, their deaths with killing, their slavery with war. On the silver, cold like steel side, there is the symbol of Vengence, a quote from the best fan-made video I have ever seen (go on the youtube NOW and search for Anders+hurricane ^^) and a flame.

"There is a fire inside
of this heart and a riot
about to explode into flames..."

Just like Anders and Justice, this pendant is ment to be worn with it's gold side out, but the other side, the dangerous and rebellious side is always there, even if it's usually hidden from view. . But for how long?

The pendant is two sided, made of polymer clay, 75x25mm. Handmade and one of a kind! :)

Grab it on etsy! [link]

No rush. :) Glad to hear you liked it enough to possibly make another one, though.

Adding you to my watch list. :D
