An amusing abstract figural ring. The curly haired child clutches a flower & her golden face, looks both forward & back echoing the Roman God Janus - the God of new beginnings. This delightful ring, symbolic of the innocence of childhood, doubles as a miniature sculpture - when not worn she can stand on her own two feet!
