Our stunning, handmade, modern Sterling Silver Indalo Man (El Indalo or Almeria Man) as a simplified, modern, version of the popular classic Indalo Man (which you can see here).
Our modern Sterling Silver Indalo Man is hand-crafted from 2mm (0.08") thick sterling silver rod, and he measures 4cm (1.57") at his widest point and 4cm (1.57") long.
We think he's very beautiful as well as cute, and he makes a perfect gift for yourself or for a loved one, and he can be made in 9ct Gold.
The Indalo Man is a representation of a cave painting found in the Los Vélez area of the province of Almeria (which is in the region of Andalucia, Southern Spain). The cave painting was officially discovered in 1868 and made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. The cave paintings found are believed to be at least 4,500 years old and the Indalo Man is believed to be a representation of a prehistoric God who holds a Rainbow with open arms.
The Indalo Man is believed to bring good luck, health and love to those who own one and it is customary in the region of Almeria to paint the Indalo symbol on the front of houses and businesses to protect them from evil! The Indalo Man is an important symbol across the Region of Andalucia.
He hangs from a sterling silver chain - length and type of your choice (we recommend a sterling silver trace chain as shown in the pictures).
You can choose to have the Indalo Man in a highly polished, shiny finish or in a matt satin finish, please choose below when purchasing.
As the Indalo Man is made to order you will receive a totally unique piece of special jewellery. He may not be exactly the same as those in the picture but he will be very similar and unique!
He will be posted to you by recorded delivery. You can see him for sale in our Etsy shop here.
Our new Indalo Man is also available in 9ct Yellow Gold - and can also be made as a Keyring or as a pair of Earrings - please contact me for prices using the Product Enquiry form below! You can see our new Indalo Man Cufflinks here.
