The Celts of antiquity often wore elaborate neck torcs - often enough that it became a hallmark of their culture. Other cultures of antiquity wore them, but none as profusely as the Celts. ''Torc'', from Latin ''Torque'' is a reference to the twisting of the metal, usually gold or bronze to make the neck torc. More elaborate examples being a sign of noble status. Some examples leave so little ''squeeze'' to take them off that it is surmised that some Celts wore them permanently. A roman copy of the Greek sculpture ''The Dying Gaul'' shows a vanquished Celt wearing only a torc. This torc of brass features two serpentine heads at its ends.

Length Around from tip to tip: 18 1/2'' Weight: 12 oz
