The five-pointed star or pentagram is one of the most potent, powerful, and persistent symbols in human history. It has been important to almost every ancient culture, from the Mayans of Latin America, to India, China, Greece, and Egypt. It has been found scratched on the walls of Neolithic caves, and in Babylonian drawings, where it marks the pattern the planet Venus makes on its travels- a secret symbol of the Goddess Ishtar. Scriptures, especially Hebrew, are abundant with references to pentagrams.
Renaissance-era ritual magicians, like the Greeks, used the Pentagram as a microcosm of the human body. The practice of Ritual Magic was used to create a state of closeness with god through the use of symbols and rituals to imitate the divine state.
This pendant is handmade from Fine Pewter. The metal has been crafted to create a flat pentagram with interweaving points. The piece has been hand painted with blood-red enamel which becomes the backdrop behind the star. It would make the perfect addition to a gothic jewelry collection, or a great meaningful gift for one who needs protection. The wearer will gain protection and strength from the 5 pointed star. The measurements are as follows:
The piece will be sent with an adjustable black cotton strap, but it also looks nice with a silver chain.
