Simba Gold Plated Lion Dangle Earrings
NOBLE – STRONG – COURAGEOUS
Simba is the Swahili name for lion. No other animal in history has inspired fear, awe and respect quite like the “king of the jungle”.
Ancient Egyptians revered the lioness as a spiritual being and a symbol of feminine power, while in ancient Greece, lions were viewed as guardians and protectors of the home. The lion has also represented royalty since the days of the great empires of Egypt, Africa, and Mesopotamia. In temple reliefs, the pharaoh was often depicted as a crouching lion, and African kings adorned their formal attire with lion pelts as a sign of their status and wealth.
In the wild, lions are the most social of the big cats and live in prides. They are highly territorial and fiercely guard their terrain by marking it with urine, roaring and chasing off intruders. Their unmistakable roar can be heard up to 8km away!
Females are the primary hunters and they work together to bring an animal down – a great reminder of the value of teamwork and cooperation to achieve success.
They demonstrate an easy strength and natural dignity. Let the Simba remind you that you are born powerful and to hold your head high and maintain your self-esteem, even in times of conflict.
