Introducing the Official Pendant of Fantasy Fest 2015 – The Avatar
ALEX CALDER was selected as the official, exclusive Medallion Sponsor for Fantasy Fest 2015 – limited medallions still available.
We had partnered with the renowned artist and sculptor, Daniel J. Riccio, to create a one-of-a-kind collectible medallion necklace to commemorate Fantasy Fest 2015.
Designed exclusively for the Fantasy Fest enthusiast, The Avatar is a truly beautiful piece of wearable art, representing the timeless tradition of personal expression through costume. Each piece is numbered and signed by the artist and available in either bronze or sterling silver. Production is limited to 950 total castings.
Interesting facts about The Avatar:
- Each pendant is approximately 50mm in size (about the size of a silver dollar) and is cast from 10 different pieces
- The medallion contains an internal bell, which produces sound with both a male and female face featuring eyes that float
- A trident clapper produces a musical voice inviting good karma
- The Avatar includes both a wearable pendant and a beautiful Bronze display stand so you will be able to enjoy your fantasy treasure for many years to come
Share your experience and create great memories. You don’t have to wear much, but don’t be caught at Fantasy Fest 2015 without your official Avatar medallion pendant.
Once the 950th medallion is sold, the mold will be destroyed and there will no longer be availability. Order TODAY – early orders will receive lower number pendants.
To place your order, please select either Bronze or Sterling Silver (all display stands are Bronze) and add your selection to the shopping cart. Orders take approximately 10 days to process.
An avatar is a human likeness that a deity can embrace when visiting earth. Fantasy Fest is about manifesting our own avatars and celebrating life with curiosity and wonder. This medallion, named The Avatar, will forever remind us of our shared experience.
The Avatar is a wearable bell with a story; it has a voice and comes to life when worn. The head, the internal eyes, and the clapper all respond to movement. There are two faces on the bell that represent our spirit’s masculine and feminine sides. The female face conjures intuition, water, life and the moon in the cool of night. The male face invokes action, heat, the sun, and the daytime sky. Day is the transition to night, and night to day. In this continuum, neither days nor nights are absolute. These sides represent mythic ideals that serve as reference points in a spectrum of diversity.
The faces wear the traditional mask of the carnival, offering a fashionable path to infinite possibilities. The female is the oracle. An orchid, the symbol of feminine opulence, is worn above her brow. Her headdress is adorned with life itself. It flows with the tide, and the pulse of life. On her mask is the third eye, enhancing her abilities to see destiny unfolding. The male is the dragon lord. He looks forward with confidence, and keeps attention to the moment. He wears a helmet of authority with a radiant shield above his eyes. The shield is a symbol of his keen perception. The internal clapper is their trident, the action scepter of the gods and can transform the future.
This one-of-a-kind collectible medallion pendant was designed and created by artist Daniel Riccio. It is cast in bronze or sterling silver and the 10 pieces are hand assembled. The castings are, trimmed, polished, signed and numbered by the artist. The edition is limited to 950 pendants produced exclusively for the 37th annual Fantasy Fest. Your Avatar is one of a kind, just like you and your personal experience at this year’s festival.
