Hand carved and painted Amazonian mermaid Iara pendant necklace with embedded garnets.

The indigenous people of the Amazon region tell that Iara was an excellent and courageous warrior. Her brothers were jealous of her, for her father praised her greatly. One day, the brothers decided to kill Iara. However, she heard the plan and decided to kill the brothers as a form of defense. After doing so, Iara fled into the woods. However, her father pursued her and managed to capture her. As punishment, Iara was thrown into the river Solimões (Amazon region). The fish that were there saved her and, as it was a full moon night, she was transformed into a beautiful mermaid.
