Central to Chickasaw culture, four loksi shells are arranged in the four directions. Loksi (turtle) is a central aspect of the Stomp Dance. Shells are filled with pebbles and bound together on leather. Women then wear them on their legs as they dance, creating the rhythm of the music.

This statement pendant represents the backs of the important turtle and are black ruthenium plate over bronze, or in fine silver plated sterling silver so the metal will not tarnish. Chain is adjustable from 15"- 18".
