Cartography - Saudade, Traditional Brazilian Necklace w/ St. Michael in Sterling Silver and Brass

Regular price $155.00

The portuguese word saudade is like few others, in that it has no direct translation in english - and any attempt, in the heart of a native speaker, falls short of encapsulating the depth + complexity of its meaning. one effort claims that it is an emotional state of profound nostalgia, a longing for an absent something or someone that one loves; moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing may never return.
