Product Description

The swastika is a symbol that was used by of one of the most hated men on Earth, it's remembered as a symbol that represents one of the most destructive wars on Earth.  But Adolf Hitler was not the first to use this Sacred Symbol. In fact, it was used as a powerful symbol thousands of years before him, across many cultures and continents. The word swastika comes from the Sanskrit svastika, which means “good fortune” or “well-being." The motif (a hooked cross) appears to have first been used in Neolithic Eurasia, perhaps representing the movement of the sun through the sky. To this day it is a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Odinism. Learn more! 


The swastika depicts a four-armed cross which is *turning*. As such, it can represent the course of the solar year: two solstices and two equinoxes at equal intervals, which turns constantly. This four-armed cross was also used to turn the spindle of a fire-drill, for starting fires -- often a religious act at the winter-solstice. It's basically a "sun-wheel" and would have been intuited by any tribe of people who bothered to study the annual course of the sun.


The design represents obvious symbology used by the ancients: a square represents stability, a circle eternity, a triangle point (there are 4 small triangles), and a cross intersection, a swastika represents a whirl which is to say energy, forming four M’s turning to the right. Those 4 M’s can be understood to represent: Mind, Matter, Microcosm and Macrocosm. Additionally, the bigger swastika cross turns to the left and the smaller one to the right which provides perfect balance of forces.


A Sanskrit scholar P. R. Sarkar in 1979 said that the deeper meaning of the word is ‘Permanent Victory’. He also said that as any symbol it can have positive and negative meaning depending on how it is drawn. So in Hinduism, the right-hand swastika is a symbol of the God Vishnu and the Sun, while the left-hand swastika is a symbol of Kali and Magic. The double meaning of symbols is common in ancient traditions, like for example the symbol of the pentagram (five pointed star), which is viewed as negative when pointing downwards, and positive when pointing upwards.

 

**Note: Any model that has a 'FIRST TO TRY' icon is in the experimental printing stage. This means that ordering this model will send it into the "FIRST" test for 3D printing for your chosen material. There can be very rare instances where the model must be updated in order to complete the 3D printing process. If this is the case, you will be notified that your order was canceled and must be placed again. This occurs to allow you to re-approve the updated version of the chosen model before being charged for anything.**
