The Mouth of Truth is an ancient marble mask walled into the wall of the porch of the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, an ancient Roman church, a proto-Christian place of worship. According to legend, for the rules of the Roman courts, the prisoner, if innocent, had to escape the amputation of his hand by the hungry lions hidden in a cell behind the mask. No one who has visited this suggestive monument can resist the thrill of the proof of the Truth. Married couples from all over the world use it as a ritual and joking demonstration of fidelity. Tedora has dedicated a small unmissable Charm to this exciting legend, a wonderful memory of your “Roman Holidays”.
Compatible with Pandora, Vivara and Trollbeads bracelets, the Charms are in pure 925 silver and hand forged by Tedora, a famous Tuscan laboratory specializing in the creation of unique miniatures dedicated to Italian traditions and monuments.
