This pendant is part of a series of unique works I created called the Goddess Talismans.
I handcut these layers of sterling silver and oxidised copper so that when riveted together they form a Flower of Life pattern with a meditating Goddess figure with Lotus Flowers. In the heart centre of the goddess I set a red garnet stone.
The Flower of Life is an ancient Sacred Geometric design based around the circle. It is made up of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles that form a flower pattern with sixfold symmetry. This design contains ancient, theological value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. It is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all things. In sacred geometry the circle represents the sphere in 2 dimensions. It is one of the most universal symbol known to man and the ultimate representation of the unity and inseparability of all things.
Lotus Symbolism: The Lotus has long been know as a symbol of Creation, it's beautiful blooms emerging from the muddy pond. The Egyptians associated the lotus flower with the sun which also disappeared in the night, only to re-emerge in the morning. Therefore the lotus came to symbolize the Sun and Creation. In many hieroglyphics works the lotus is depicted as emerging from Nun (the primordial water) bearing the Sun God.
This pendant is 4cm in diameter and comes on a 45cm sterling silver chain.
Your purchase will come packaged in a gift box complete with wax seal.
