Product Description

An object which goes back to 1100 BC and is mysterious in its original use, probably magic, as it was at the time. The symbols are very powerful and unusual, so it is made here as a pendant without a ring to hang it so as to make everyone able to change orientation, either by adding one ring for a chain or using a leather string. A delicate and absolutely unique piece of jewelry. Here is the whole story: some time ago I was fascinated by the picture of an Armenian bronze on show in Leiden. I bought the picture and kept it in my diary, which for many years has been in paper, then I thought of designing it 3d to create a pendant, and finally got it printed and I am wearing it. The program used to design it is Blender 3d. What I like is the puzzle it represents to me, as it appears to be so modern and is so old, maybe around 2000 BC . It reminds me of Hittiti. The original one is 25 cm lenght and the caption on the picture says it might have had something to do with planets. To me the object has lots of energy, both because of its beauty and as it has an energy of its own. As you can notice, the rays of the two circles ( suns?) are 9+1 and 11+1 - 10 is considered a protective number, and by googling I found out it is in radionics. 12 is also a multiple of 4, 4x3, and here you have 3 rhombuses, each of them having 4 directions which end in different yet symmetric ways. The inner rhombuses recall the eye of God in Native American culture, but they also suggest the infinite and a center, to me. The inner self which has 8 different directions, 4 + 4 which are secondary ones. On the right, the termination reminds me of a man inside a maze, the rockster of Native American culture, with his arms pointing down as he has not found a solution, or it might be something having its growth inside, with an open choice ( the inner circle) enclosed in a system both limiting and protecting ( the outside circle). The two terminations you see 75° on the right might have been broken, no idea what they might have been. The arrows pointing outwards and the rhombuses might also represent masculine and feminine. In a sci- fi film this might well be the key to a space ship. Whatever it is, I like it a lot, here it is printed in the version in steel gold plated in 24k.
