Remind yourself or your loved one of the inner strength and beauty. Our light shines through the cracks and wounds of our bodies. Although the world is full of pain, we can also overcome it, this is a beautiful gift that reminds us of the light in our hearts. The expression self-love has the generic meaning of “self-love” understood as an autonomous behavior of respect for one’s human condition. It is a natural feeling to be evaluated positively since it is aimed at the self-preservation of the individual, “that strong affirmation that nature inspires us for ourselves“, but becomes a “negative principle, since, arising from the comparison with the others, is configured as a social feeling and is therefore subordinate to opinion… As soon as, in fact, one gets into the habit of measuring oneself with others and going out of oneself to assign oneself the first and best place, it is impossible not to feel aversion for everything that prevents us from being everything“.

Learning to love yourself is important to living happier and healthier in every aspect of your life. Loving yourself means accepting yourself as you are, in the present moment. And to do so it is also necessary to forgive yourself. In fact, it happens that we are overwhelmed by situations that we perceive beyond our control: in these cases, in psychology we speak of an external locus of control, which can also lead to learned helplessness. Anger, resentment, hatred, frustration, and guilt are just some of the emotions we might be turning to ourselves. All this often leads to a negative self-evaluation, so much so that it prevents us from forgiving ourselves. ‍Only by learning to become aware of who we are and to understand that making mistakes is normal and that imperfections belong to each of us, will we be able to forgive ourselves and love ourselves. The truth is, there is only one person you spend every second of every day of your life with: yourself. Learning to love yourself can be a long and complicated process, but it will also lead to greater freedom and self-awareness.

Crafted of durable metal and high-grade paint coating, will not fade or rust under heat, sunlight, humidity, and rain. There is a hook on the back of the Sun wall decor for easy hanging. A Solar Symbol is a symbol representing the Sun. Common solar symbols include circles (with or without rays), crosses, and spirals. In religious iconography, personifications of the Sun or Solar Attributes are indicated by means of a halo or a radiate crown. When the systematic study of comparative mythology first became popular in the 19th century, scholarly opinion tended to over-interpret historical myths and iconography in terms of “solar symbolism“. This was especially the case with Max Müller and his followers beginning in the 1860s in the context of Indo-European studies. Many “Solar Symbols” claimed in the 19th century, such as the Swastika, Triskele, Sun Cross, etc. have tended to be interpreted more conservatively in scholarship since the later 20th century. The basic element of most solar symbols is the circular solar disk. The disk can be modified in various ways, notably by adding rays (found in the Bronze Age in Egyptian depictions of Aten) or a cross. In the ancient Near East, the solar disk could also be modified by addition of the Uraeus (rearing cobra), and in ancient Mesopotamia it was shown with wings. A representation of the sun is used as a heraldic charge.

The most usual form, often called Sun in Splendor or Glory, consists of a round disk with the features of a human face surrounded by 12 or 16 wavy and straight alternating rays. The alternating straight and wavy rays are often said to represent light and heat from the sun, respectively. It was used as a badge by Edward II of England and later adopted by Edward IV following the appearance of a parhelion or “Sun Dog” before his victory at the Battle of Mortimer’s Cross in 1461. It also had a meaning in alchemy and could be a symbol of the Roman deity Sol Invictus (Sun not Conquered). It is a common accusation in the heraldry of many countries, for example. Armstrong Bearings, Canada and Banbury City Council Arms, England. It also often appears as a rising sun as in the arms of East Devon District Council, England, and as a half sun as in the coat of arms of Aitchison, Canada. The May Sun shown on the national flags of Argentina (1818), Uruguay (1828), in the flag and shield of the state of southern Peru (1836 – 1839), on the flag and shield of the Peruvian-Bolivian Confederation (1836 – 1839), in the flag of Peru of 1812, in the current flag of the Peruvian Navy (1821), and in the current flag of the Argentine Army (1810) and which represents the indigenous Inca culture, in particular the Inca God of the SunInti” or also called “Sun of May“, all identical in form to the “Sun in Splendor“.

Wings of Horus Altar Side Table Statue, Egyptian & Symbolic Statues, Winged Sun Altar Side Table Statue

Wings of Horus Altar Side Table Statue, Egyptian & Symbolic Statues, Winged Sun Altar Side Table Statue

Wings of Horus Altar Side Table Statue

This Wings of Horus Altar Side Table Statue is a creative combination of style and function. The rich details, from red sun disk to cobra snakes, look wonderful. High-quality egyptian decor, hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with durable designer resin, this Wings of Horus side table is hand painted in faux gold and the rich tones of the Egyptian palette and topped with a glass table top. Horus the Falcon God spreads his wings as a 360° statue, awe-inspiring from any angle beneath a 19.5 inches / 49.5 cm diameter, bevel-edged glass table top secured by a steady fulcrum pivot. Egyptian God Horus, one of the most significant Egyptian deities, Horus is the God of the Sky, war and hunting. He is often depicted as a falcon or a man with the head of a falcon. Since Horus was said to be the sky, he was considered to also contain the Sun and Moon. Egyptians believed that the Sun was his right eye and the Moon his left, and that they traversed the sky when he, a falcon, flew across it. Later, the reason that the Moon was not as bright as the Sun was explained by a tale, known as The Contendings of Horus and Seth. In this tale, it was said that Set, the patron of Upper Egypt, and Horus, the patron of Lower Egypt, had battled for Egypt brutally, with neither side victorious, until eventually, the gods sided with Horus. As Horus was the ultimate victor he became known as ḥr.w wr “Horus the Great“, but more usually translated “Horus the Elder“. In the struggle, Set had lost a testicle, and Horus’ eye was gouged out.

The Winged Sun is a symbol that likely existed even before the Egyptian civilization. Archeologists have found carved winged suns in ancient stones, making this symbol one of the first recorded in human history. In Egyptian tradition, the Winged Sun appeared in the Old Kingdom, and it remained important throughout the history of this culture. The representations of this symbol show it as its name indicates, a sun or solar disk in the center with spread wings on either. In many cases, the Winged Sun also had Egyptian cobras flanking it. This symbol represented royalty, power, and divinity in Ancient Egypt, but it also held significance in other eastern regions like Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and Persia. Due to its associations with the sun, the Winged Sun was linked to the Sun God Ra. However, it’s most common associations were with Horus. At the start, the Winged Sun was the symbol of the Behdety, the God of the Midday Sun. In later times, this god became an aspect of Horus, so the Winged Sun was associated with him. When combined with Behdety, he became known as Horus of Behdet or Horus of Edfu. Since Horus was the protector of the kingship and a divine ruler, the Winged Sun had associations with these traits too. In the terrible fight between Horus and Set for the rule of Egypt, Horus flew to battle and opposed Set in the form of the Winged Sun. The most famous representation of the Winged Sun is still present in the Temple of Edfu.

In its female form, the Winged Sun represented the Goddess Hathor. Apart from the symbolism given by its connection with Horus and the Sun, the Winged Sun represented other important concepts for the Egyptians. The symbol became an amulet of protection over time. Since Horus had defeated the mighty antagonist Set in the form of the Winged Sun, this symbol became associated with protection against evil. From the Middle Kingdom onwards, the Egyptians used the Winged Sun as an amulet in tombs and in the sarcophagi of the pharaohs for protection. In Ancient Egypt, the Winged Sun was a symbol of the Power of the Sun, Royalty, the Soul, and Eternity. In this sense, the Winged Sun became an attribute of different deities in the myths. Its veneration in Ancient Egypt grew more famous by the millennia. This symbol was deemed as holding many powers and was related to the eternal fight between good and evil, light, and darkness. The Winged Sun shed light over the world and protected the skies and the Universe against those who wanted to cause pain and suffering. The Sun itself was a symbol of nourishment, power, and life. Without the Sun, Life could not exist the way it does, and the world would be immersed in eternal darkness. This idea strengthens the symbolism of the Winged Sun and the Goodness of the World.

Inca Chief Priest’s Ceramic Mask Statue, Symbolic Statues, Sapa Inca Ceramic Mask Statue

Inca Chief Priest's Ceramic Mask Statue, Symbolic Statues, Sapa Inca Ceramic Mask Statue

Inca Chief Priest’s Ceramic Mask Statue

The creation of this Inca Chief Priest’s Ceramic Mask Statue follows a long tradition of ceramic craftsmanship, using techniques that have been preserved for generations. The natural quality of the wood in this piece is showcased by the care put into carving it. The care taken to paint this piece shows in the details of the design. In a splash of blazing color, the visage of an Inca Chief Priest springs to life. This mask fervently mixes creative geometric forms with bright South American images generating an exciting feeling of movement and activity. Bringing into the home a touch of ancient Peruvian sacredness, this mask makes an intriguing wall adornment. The Sapa Inca was conceptualized as divine and was effectively head of the state religion. The Willaq Umu (or Chief Priest) was second to the emperor. Local religious traditions continued and in some cases such as the Oracle at Pachacamac on the Peruvian coast, were officially venerated. Following Pachacuti, the Sapa Inca claimed descent from Inti, who placed a high value on imperial blood, by the end of the empire, it was common to incestuously wed brother and sister. He was “Son of the Sun“, and his people the intip churin, or “Children of the Sun“, and both his right to rule and mission to conquer derived from his holy ancestor.

The Sapa Inca also presided over ideologically important festivals, notably during the Inti Raymi, or “Sunfest” attended by soldiers, mummified rulers, nobles, clerics and the general population of Cusco beginning on the June Solstice and culminating 9 days later with the ritual Breaking of the Earth using a foot plow by the Inca. Moreover, Cusco was considered cosmologically central, loaded as it was with huacas and radiating ceque lines as the geographic center of the Four-Quarters. Inca Garcilaso de la Vega called it “the Navel of the Universe“. Scholarly research demonstrates that Incan belief systems were integrated with their view of the Cosmos, especially in regard to the way that the Inca observed the motions of the Milky Way and the Solar System as seen from Cusco, the Inca capital whose name meant the center of the earth. From this perspective, their stories depict the movements of constellations, planets, and planetary formations, which are all connected to their agricultural cycles. This was especially important for the Inca, as they relied on cyclical agricultural seasons, which were not only connected to annual cycles, but to a much wider cycle of time (every 800 years at a time). This way of keeping time was deployed in order to ensure the cultural transmission of key information, in spite of regime change or social catastrophes. Sapa Inca Ceramic Mask Statue measures: 11.5 inches / 29 cm x 4.7 inches / 12 cm x 2.6 inches / 6.5 cm.

God Zeus Statue, Greeks, Gods & Symbolic Statues, God Zeus Holding Thunderbolt Statue

God Zeus Statue, Greeks, Gods & Symbolic Statues, God Zeus Holding Thunderbolt Statue

God Zeus Holding Thunderbolt Statue

God Zeus Statue crafted by master artisan using high quality designer resin and cold cast bronze method, the casting method of mixing bronze material and resin together in order to create detailed statues with metallic surface. Zeus was the sky and thunder god in ancient Greek Religion, who ruled as King of the Gods of Mount Olympus. His name is cognate with the first element of his Roman equivalent Jupiter. Zeus is the child of Cronus and Rhea, the youngest of his siblings to be born, though sometimes reckoned the eldest as the others required disgorging from Cronus’s stomach. In most traditions, he is married to Hera, by whom he is usually said to have fathered Ares, Hebe, and Hephaestus. At the Oracle of Dodona, his consort was said to be Dione, by whom the Iliad states that he fathered Aphrodite. A Thunderbolt or Lightning Bolt is a symbolic representation of lightning when accompanied by a loud thunderclap. In Indo-European mythology, the thunderbolt was identified with the “Sky Father“, this association is also found in later Hellenic representations of Zeus and Vedic descriptions of the vajra wielded by the God Indra. It may have been a symbol of cosmic order, as expressed in the fragment from Heraclitus describing “the Thunderbolt that steers the course of all things“. In its original usage the word may also have been a description of the consequences of a close approach between 2 planetary cosmic bodies, as Plato suggested in Timaeus, or, according to Victor Clube, meteors, though this is not currently the case.

As a divine manifestation the Thunderbolt has been a powerful symbol throughout history, and has appeared in many mythologies. Drawing from this powerful association, the thunderbolt is often found in military symbolism and semiotic representations of electricity. Zeus’s Lightning Bolt (Thunderbolt or Master Bolt) is the signature weapon and symbol of power for the Olympian God of Thunder, Zeus. It is said to be the most powerful and feared weapon on Earth and in the Heavens. It was created for him by the Cyclopes and Hecatoncheires in Tartaros, in conjunction with Poseidon’s Trident and Hades’ Helm of Darkness to defeat the Titans. During the Titanomachy, when Zeus was at war against Cronus and the Titans, he released his brothers, Hades and Poseidon, along with the Cyclops and Hecatoncheires. In turn, the Cyclopes gave Zeus the thunderbolt, a weapon of lightning that was imbued with the power over the sky. The thunderbolt became a popular symbol of Zeus and continues to be today. Zeus and Zeus alone uses the Thunderbolt (unlike the Trident which is used not only by Poseidon, Amphitrite and Triton). While Typhon and Zeus are doing battle, Zeus throws a lightning bolt at Typhon which threw him to a mountain. Zeus, quickly regaining strength, tossed one hundred Lightning Bolts at Typhon, killing him. He then threw his remains into Tartatus. God Zeus Holding Thunderbolt Statue measures: 10.8 inches / 27.5 cm x 8 inches / 20.5 cm x 14 inches / 35.5 cm.

Eve with Coiling Serpent Statue, Symbolic, Religious & Christianity Statues, Eve Holding Apple with Coiling Serpent Statue

Eve with Coiling Serpent Statue, Symbolic, Religious & Christianity Statues, Eve Holding Apple with Coiling Serpent Statue

Eve Holding Apple with Coiling Serpent Statue

This Eve with Coiling Serpent Statue is beautifully created in cold cast bronze, a process of mixing bronze powder with resin giving it a stunning solid metal appearance. Hand detailed with red and green colored accents giving to Eve and to the Serpent a visually exciting look. Depicts a bare Eve as she contemplates eating the forbidden fruit and being led astray by the serpent as it coils around her, enticing her to take a bite. You will not certainly die, says the serpent, but Eve knows to be wary the temptation of the forbidden fruit. Designed by world-famous artist James Ryman, this attractive statue depicts a bare Eve, standing in the garden, holding a red apple in her hand as the serpent coils itself up her body, enticing her to eat it, whispering temptations as she gazes into its eyes. Serpents are referred to in both the Hebrew Bible and the Christian New Testament. The symbol of a serpent or snake played important roles in religious and cultural life of ancient Egypt, Canaan, Mesopotamia and Greece. The serpent was a symbol of evil power and chaos from the underworld as well as a symbol of fertility, life and healing. Nāhāš, Hebrew for “snake“, is also associated with divination, including the verb form meaning “to practice divination or fortune-telling“.

Nāhāš occurs in the Torah to identify the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Throughout the Hebrew Bible, it is also used in conjunction with Seraph to describe vicious serpents in the wilderness. The Tannin, a dragon monster, also occurs throughout the Hebrew Bible. In the Book of Exodus, the staves of Moses and Aaron are turned into serpents, a Nāhāš for Moses, a Tannin for Aaron. In the New Testament, the Book of Revelation makes use of ancient serpent and the Dragon several times to identify Satan or the Devil (Rev 12:9; 20:2). The serpent is most often identified with the hubristic Satan, and sometimes with Lilith. The story of the Garden of Eden and the fall of man represents a tradition among the Abrahamic religions, with a presentation more or less symbolical of certain moral and religious truths. In the Hebrew Bible, the Book of Genesis refers to a serpent who triggered the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden in Eden (Gen 3:1-20). Serpent is also used to describe sea monsters. Examples of these identifications are in the Book of Isaiah where a reference is made to a serpent-like dragon named Leviathan (Isaiah 27:1), and in the Book of Amos where a serpent resides at the bottom of the sea (Amos 9:3).

Serpent figuratively describes biblical places such as Egypt (Jer 46:22), and the City of Dan (Gen 49:17). The prophet Jeremiah also compares the King of Babylon to a serpent (Jer 51:34). Serpent occurs in the Book of Revelation as the “ancient serpent” or “old serpent” used to describe “the dragon“, Satan the Adversary, who is the devil. This serpent is depicted as a red 7-headed dragon having 10 horns, each housed with a diadem. The Serpent battles Michael the Archangel in a War in Heaven which results in this devil being cast out to the earth. While on earth, he pursues the Woman of the Apocalypse. Unable to obtain her, he wages war with the rest of her seed (Revelation 12:1-18). He who has the key to the abyss and a great chain over his hand, binds the serpent for a thousand years. The serpent is then cast into the abyss and sealed within until he is released (Revelation 20:1-3). In Christian tradition, the “ancient serpent” is commonly identified with the Genesis Serpent and as Satan. This identification redefined the Hebrew Bible’s concept of Satan (“the Adversary“, a member of the Heavenly Court acting on behalf of God to test Job’s faith), so that Satan/Serpent became a part of a divine plan stretching from Creation to Christ and the Second Coming.

Ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.

Colorful Crystal Cross Statue, Religious, Christianity & Symbolic Statues, Standing Colorful Crystal Cross “for Mothers Day” Statue

Colorful Crystal Cross Statue, Religious, Christianity & Symbolic Statues, Standing Colorful Crystal Cross "for Mothers Day" Statue

Standing Colorful Crystal Cross “for Mothers Day” Statue

This expertly crafted and carefully designed Colorful Crystal Cross Statue is completely handmade, made of high quality K9 crystal. Shining more than a glass cross, it will be a beautiful addition to your spirit. The Cross, once the cruelest form of execution, yet now it is a symbol of abundant life. Crystal cross signify magic, mystery, royalty, and good judgment. It define a feeling of calm or a feeling of energy. The energies of cross have the ability to get rid us of obstacles and restore the balance into our life. Stand the elegant crystal cross on your window sill and let the light shine through to radiate God’s love throughout your home “Rainbow“. A cross is a geometrical figure consisting of 2 intersecting lines or bars, usually perpendicular to each other. The lines usually run vertically and horizontally. A cross of oblique lines, in the shape of the Latin letter X, is termed a Saltire in heraldic terminology. The Cross is a great contradiction. A simple upright post with a transverse bar used crucifixion. It’s a symbol of death, but so much more.

Death and life, hate and love, violence and peace, accusation and forgiveness, sin and purity, brokeness and wholeness, all is lost yet everything is gained, destruction and restoration, defeat and victory. Once the cruelest form of execution, yet now it is a symbol of abundant life. The cross in its various shapes and forms was a symbol of various beliefs. In pre-Christian times it was a pagan religious symbol throughout Europe and western Asia. In ancient times, the effigy of a man hanging on a cross was set up in the fields to protect the crops. The cross was even considered a male symbol of the phallic Tree of Life, thus it often appeared in conjunction with the female-genital circle or oval, to signify the sacred marriage, as in Egyptian amulet Nefer with male cross and female orb, considered as an amulet of blessedness, a charm of sexual harmony. The word cross is recorded in 11th-century Old English as cros, exclusively for the instrument of Christ’s crucifixion, replacing the native Old English word rood. The word’s history is complicated, it appears to have entered English from Old Irish, possibly via Old Norse, ultimately from the Latin crux (or its accusative crucem and its genitive crucis), “stake, cross“.

The English verb to cross arises from the noun, first used in the sense “to make the sign of the cross“, the generic meaning “to intersect” develops in the 15th century. The Latin word was, however, influenced by popular etymology by a native Germanic word reconstructed as krukjo (English crook, Old English crycce, Old Norse krokr, Old High German krucka). This word, by conflation with Latin crux, gave rise to Old French crocier (modern French crosse), the term for a shepherd’s crook, adopted in English as crosier. Latin crux referred to the gibbet where criminals were executed, a stake or pole, with or without transom, on which the condemned were impaled or hanged, but more particularly a cross or the pole of a carriage. The derived verb cruciare means “to put to death on the cross” or, more frequently, “to put to the rack, to torture, torment“, especially in reference to mental troubles. In the Roman world, furca replaced crux as the name of some cross-like instruments for lethal and temporary punishment, ranging from a forked cross to a gibbet or gallows.

The field of etymology is of no help in any effort to trace a supposed original meaning of crux. A crux can be of various shapes, from a single beam used for impaling or suspending (crux simplex) to the various composite kinds of cross (crux compacta) made from more beams than one. The latter shapes include not only the traditional †-shaped cross (the crux immissa), but also the T-shaped cross (the crux commissa or tau cross), which the descriptions in antiquity of the execution cross indicate as the normal form in use at that time, and the X-shaped cross (the crux decussata or saltire). The Greek equivalent of Latin cruxstake, gibbet” is stauros, found in texts of 4 centuries or more before the gospels and always in the plural number to indicate a stake or pole. From the first century BC, it is used to indicate an instrument used in executions. The Greek word is used in descriptions in antiquity of the execution cross, which indicate that its normal shape was similar to the Greek letter tau (T). Standing Colorful Crystal Cross “for Mothers Day” Statue measures: 6.4 inches / 16 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm x 3 inches / 7.5 cm.

Egyptian Eye of Horus Statue, Egyptian & Symbolic Statues, “Eye of Horus Symbol of Rebirth” Statue

Egyptian Eye of Horus Statue, Egyptian & Symbolic Statues, "Eye of Horus Symbol of Rebirth" Statue

Egyptian Eye of Horus “Symbol of Rebirth” Statue

This Egyptian Eye of Horus Statue is hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with high quality designer resin. Hang this popular amulet for protection and good luck! Symbolizing the power of the God of light, this Eye of Horus is intricately carved, then cast in quality designer resin and hand-painted in full color. The Eye of Horus (also known as the Eye of Ra) is the Symbol that identifies the Rebirth. The Eye of Horus is an Egyptian Hieroglyph that resembles a human eye with a forehead and a line of eyeliner that extends outwards. The lower part represents a stylized plumage of birds, to recall the features of a hawk attributed to the God. Used in ancient times as an emblem of royalty and amulet for the protection of the dead, the Eye of Horus was a symbol of indestructibility that favors rebirth, so much so that it was also found under the 12th layer of bandages that wrapped the mummy of Tutankhamun. A symbol in many ways ambiguous, it describes the state of recovered integrity. In the Pharaonic Era, for example, it represented the eternal renewal of the divine kingship of the King of kings. In astronomy, on the other hand, it is the symbol of the Moon that refers to the growing completion of the Moon.

It was said that in ancient times, Egypt was ruled by the God Osiris. He had a brother, Seth, and 2 sisters, Isis and Nephthys. One day Seth, jealous of his brother, treacherously killed him and hid his body. Isis, sister and wife of Osiris, went in search of the body and, after she found it, thanks to her magical arts, she managed to become pregnant with the dead God. Not content, Seth managed to get hold of his brother’s body and reduced it into 14 pieces, which were scattered across the 7 branches of the Nile Delta. Helped by her sister, Isis was able to reassemble the parts of Osiris’s body and resurrect him with the help of the God Anubis. But Osiris, unable to remain on earth, became the king of the kingdom of the dead. The son of Osiris and Isis, Horus, was thus raised by his mother in great secrecy in the papyrus of the Delta. Once an adult, Horus ousted his cruel uncle Seth from the throne. Thanks to the constant help of his mother and after a fight in which he lost an eye, the final victory over Seth allowed Horus to become the new ruler of all Egypt.

The Eye of Horus was represented not only as a protective amulet, but also to indicate which part of the Brain should be relied upon for particular “inner work“. (Eye of Horus & Pineal Gland & Dreams). During the discovery of one’s own higher self, in fact, reference was made to the Eye of Horus to indicate that whoever exhibited it was “awake and consciousin the reality in which they find themselves. The Eye of Horus, therefore, has also performed a particular protective function, mindful of the psyche, which will be activated to remain “alert” so as to escape from any external attacks. Rebirth is a word that not only has a literal meaning, but also indicates a strong renewal. A change of direction, a collective or individual turning point, capable of changing life. Over the centuries, many peoples have adopted this concept in their traditions, then giving it specific characters and, often, combining them with a figurative element. Symbols, figures, images: rebirth is shown in different ways, each linked to a specific tradition, to a precise meaning. “Eye of Horus Symbol of Rebirth” Statue sizes: 12 inches / 30.5 cm x 1.5 inches / 4 cm x 8.5 inches / 21.5 cm.

In Celtic symbolism the Triquetra symbolized the feminine aspect of the Divine (because everything that generates life is mother and not father), depicted as a triple female divinity of girl, mother and old woman, while in northern Europe it appears in runic stones. This symbol consists of a single line that intertwines creating a triangular shape, which may or may not be enclosed in a circle. It is one of several Celtic symbols that represent the Triplicity of the Universe.

For the Celts, in fact, all important things could be represented according to the principle of triplicity: life, death, rebirth / past, present, future / earth, sky, sea / mind, body, soul. When represented with a circle, this indicates the unity in the spirit of the 3 elements represented. While in the Christian Age the Triquetra became a symbol of the Holy Trinity, in Celtic mythology it was associated with a female divinity, the Great Mother, identified in the moon and its 3 phases. This sign, and its various stylistic variants, is known as Triquetra, a term deriving from the prefix “tri“, derived from the Latin tres meaning “3 times“, and “quetrus“, meaning “made at an angle“. Also called the Trinitarian Node, this sign is perhaps one of the most important that represents the profound symbolic meaning associated with the number 3, the Ternary. Always considered a holy or divine number par excellence, this value still maintains the name of “perfect number” today. Triquetra, therefore, and its link with the holy number 3, it takes on different symbolic meanings depending on the context, Christian or Pagan, in which it is found.

It is clear, in fact, that in the context of Christian emblematics, the Triquetra is nothing other than the expression of the Divine Trinity, especially since it can be said to result from the union and intersection of three distinct “Vesica Piscis“: if a single stylized fish represents Jesus, then the union and interpenetration of 3 fish necessarily means the union of the 3 Divine Persons into One: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. In the earlier pagan cults, in particular those linked to the Celts and Druidism (the Triquetra, in essence, is only the most elementary of Celtic knots), the symbol assumes a more “telluric” aspect, indicative of the 3 predominant natural forces: earth, air and water. On a more spiritual level, it indicates the 3 degrees of the evolution of existence: life, death and rebirth. Furthermore, since the 3 elements of the Triquetra are strictly interconnected, they must not be considered as separate elements but as 3 different aspects of a single entity, the “whole“. Note that the graphic form of the Triple Sacred Cinta, with 3 concentric squares interconnected by the median lines, expresses nothing but the same basic concept. “Celtic Triquetra the Symbol of Rebirth” Statue sizes: 11.8 inches / 30 cm x 11.8 inches / 30 cm x 1.2 inches / 3 cm.

Sun and Moon Celestial Face “Symbols of Rebirth” Statue

With it’s striking colors that truly catches the eye, this Sun and Moon Celestial Face Statue is fantastic. With the magnificent and colorful decorative aesthetic of the jellow/orange sun and blue moon, it’s a celestial wonder that will be treasured for years to come. “The Sun is a Symbol of Rebirth. When you realize that eternity is right here now, that it is within your possibility to experience the eternity of your own truth and being, then you grasp the following: That which you are was never born and will never die, that is the insight rendered in term of the solar mystery, the solar light“. – Joseph Campbell.

The iconographic tradition of depicting the Sun with rays and with a human face developed in Western tradition in the High Medieval Period and became widespread in the Renaissance, harking back to the Sun God (Sol/Helios) wearing a radiate crown in classical antiquity. Ri – Nascimento / Re – Naissence / Re-Birth. The concept of rebirth is an ancient one and can be found in almost all religions, mythologies, and belief systems. Some religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Gnosticism, and Taoism, believe in reincarnation, where a body disintegrates but the soul lives on. Pagan and tribal religions do not have such direct notions of rebirth, but believe in elements within nature, such as water, trees, the sun, and the moon, that are continually reborn and regenerated. In modern times, these rebirth symbols have been depicted and visualized for physical, mental, and spiritual renewal. The new moon or the crescent moon is a symbol of new beginnings and rebirth. Many people start new jobs, projects, and set new goals at the start of a new moon. In some cultures, there is a belief that the New Moon rejuvenates the mind and soul, enabling an individual to have a fresh start.

God is the Life. Sun is the Life. This consciousness is the consciousness of being One, of being Light, of being Love, which is unconditional, like the eyes of God, and now through what in Christian terms is called the Holy Spirit, it is spreading into each of us. Our nature, like it or not, aware or not aware, is to reach this goal, to reach this consciousness, and we will all get there, some first and some later. The concept of “reaching” must not, however, be misunderstood: we do not reach something external to us, rather it means allowing something that is actually already inside each of us, to be! In the following script we will use this legend: I Am = God, each capital word like I, Mine, refers to God as if speaking in the first person. (I Am God, I Am in your heart and your heart at the same time, I Am in all manifest things, I Am infinite time, infinite space and sound, infinite vibration in eternal transformation, in eternal movement, I Am pure consciousness). “Sun and Moon like Symbols of Rebirth” Statue measures: 11.5 inches / 29 cm x 11.5 inches / 29 cm x 2.5 inches / 6.5 cm.

Wooden Santa Claus and his Woodland Friends Statue

Surrounded by his Woodland Friends, this elegant windswept Wooden Santa Claus Statue evokes the wonder of nature in a subtle palette of muted tones and icy blues. Beautifully sculpted in intricate detail, this unique holiday design is unmistakable. Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, or simply Santa, is a legendary character originating in Eastern Christian culture who is said to bring children gifts on Christmas Eve of toys and candy or coal or nothing, depending on whether they are “naughty or good“. He is said to accomplish this with the aid of Christmas Elves, who make the toys in his workshop at the North Pole, and flying reindeers who pull his sleigh through the air. The modern character of Santa is based on traditions surrounding the historical Saint Nicholas, the English figure of Father Christmas and the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas.

Santa is generally depicted as a portly, jolly, white-bearded man, often with spectacles, wearing a red coat with white fur collar and cuffs, white-fur-cuffed red trousers, red hat with white fur, and black leather belt and boots, carrying a bag full of gifts for children. He is commonly portrayed as laughing in a way that sounds like “ho ho ho“. On the evening of Christmas Eve he gets on his sleigh pulled by flying reindeers and goes from house to house to bring presents, all kept in a huge sack, to the children. To enter the houses, he goes down from the chimney, then emerges into the fireplace, and leaves the gifts under the Christmas Tree. During the rest of the year he is involved in the construction of toys with Mrs. Claus and her elven helpers. Closely related to the representations of Santa Claus are those of the Russian character of Grandfather Frost (Ded Moroz), who brings gifts to children and is dressed in a blue coat. He is helped by his blonde Granddaughter (Sneguročka), holds a long scepter and her sleigh is pulled by 3 horses instead of reindeers. He brings the presents on December 31st and his residence is in Veliky Ustyug in Russia.

This figure is present throughout the ex-Soviet bloc and only recently, perhaps to make it uniform with Santa Claus, is he represented with a red jacket and fur boots. Much of Santa Claus iconography appears to derive from the figure of Ded Moroz, especially through his German equivalent Väterchen Frost. Due to some decidedly out of the ordinary traits of Santa’s behavior (such as the ability to deliver, in a single night, gifts to all the children of the world who believe in him by flying on a sled, to slip into chimneys and to entering through the fireplace even in houses without fireplaces, the alleged immortality and the possession of flying reindeers), his actions are also explained by the use of magic. Santa Claus and his Woodland Friends Statue sizes: 8.25 inches / 21 cm x 5.75 inches / 14.5 cm x 10.5 inches / 26.5 cm.
