Delicate accessory and authentic replica
Our rabbit fibula, which is presented here, is a wonderful piece of jewelry made in loving manual labor. The fine decorations of the fibula correspond to the design of authentic pieces from the Roman period. The choice of bronze materials is also based on the original models.

The rabbit in Roman mythology
In Roman symbology the rabbit was an image of fertility. The goddess Venus was often accompanied by different animals, like turtles and rabbits, which also symbolize her powers. In Roman times women and young girls were often decorated with fibula of this kind. Fibulas in the design of a rabbit were used to transfer the qualities of the goddess Venus to their bearers. Feminine attributes such as beauty, creativity, intuition and fertility were supposed to be enhanced by wearing a rabbit fibula.
