Handmade pendant made from high fire white stoneware pottery clay. This focal bead has been hand formed by me, painstakingly carved with Greek Labrys, fired, glazed with tiny fine silver shavings, then fired once again. Resistant to all the elements, extremely hard and will last a lifetime! Made with care and lots of love!!
The pendant measure 1-1/8 inch x 7/8 inch wide by 1/4 inch thick (28mm x 21mm x 7mm).
**Only one model has been made, unique creation, what you see in the photo is what you will receive.
**Color can appear more or less intense depending on your PC monitor or smart phone screen.**
Origins of the Labrys:
a doubleheaded axe, known to the Classical Greeks as pelekys or sagaris, and to the Romans as a bipennis.
The labrys symbolism is found in Minoan, Thracian, Greek, and Byzantine religion, mythology, and art, dating from the Middle Bronze Age onwards. The labrys also appears in African religious symbolism and mythology (see Shango).
The labrys was formerly a symbol of Greek fascism. Today it is sometimes used as a symbol of Hellenic Neopaganism. As an LGBT symbol it represents lesbianism and female or matriarchal power.
