This anthracite coal sculpture by C. Edgar Patience features an abstract sculpted upper portion with jagged, irregular edges protruding from the top of a rectangular polished base with rounded corners. A paper label adhered to the bottom of the base reads in printed black ink "Flight / N.F.S.".
This heart-shaped pendant carved from anthracite coal is attributed to C. Edgar Patience from a design by his father Harry Brazier Patience. A design of inlaid pyrite of a circle with four (4) small leaves, two on each side of the circle, is placed on the front of the pendant. The reverse of the pendant is plain with the numbers "1969" engraved across it. A length of wire is attached around the sides of the pendant, coming to a loop at the center top so the pendant can be attached to a necklace.
