Description

This design was inspired by an ancient stone carving now housed at the Monte Santa Tecla Museum in La Guardia, Spain (see photo) . The museum collection includes items found during the various digs in the Galician/Roman settlement of Santa Trega. These range from the Paleolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic, Late Bronze Age, "Castrexo" to the Roman periods.
The design, called Solomon's Knot, is an ancient symbol that is believed to represent the union of humankind and the Divine. Its depiction in ancient synagogues led to it being linked with King Solomon. Like the mobius strip, it is a continuous loop, and to the ancients was a symbol of eternity and immortality. The element of two entwined figures also makes the knot a symbol of love.
This symbol was a particular hallmark of the medieval Italian stonemasons known as the Comacines,* who imbued it with mystical meaning, a symbol of eternal motion and the intertwining of space and time. According to Masonic lore, the Comacines were the forerunners of the Freemasons.
Solomon’s knot is also related to the swastika and the shield knot. The word “swastika” is derived from the Sanskrit “su” meaning “well” and “asti” meaning “being.” The right-hand swastika is one of the 108 symbols of the Hindu god Vishnu as well as a symbol of the sun and of the Hindu sun god, Surya. In addition to India, this symbol can be seen in the art of the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Celts, Native Americans, and Persians as well Hindus, Jains and Buddhists.

My ceramic chalices are as generous as they are lovely. These are meant for ritual use, passing 'round the fire, and looking wonderful on your altar. They are wheel thrown and lovingly assembled, both strong and light high fire porcelain. They are food , microwave and dishwasher safe, though hand washing is advised on this item. The stamps are a relief version of the embossed steins stamps. I have chosen the glaze to reflect the energy of the theme, keeping in mind also the colors that may compliment your seasonal altar.

Due to their complex assembly and decorative nature, their heights and shapes may vary slightly from batch to batch. If you would like a matching set please make a special order. I also accept requests for personalized stamps.
Another collector's item !

This chalice is a BARGAIN CHALICE due to minute slash on the stem, as seen in the photo. This is an aesthetic rather than a structural blemish. Also it has only one decorative disc vs the usual 2 afforded by the larger chalices.

11.5 tall x 4.5-5" diam. 18-20 ounce (.47 liter)
It's extra height provides an elegance that is unsurpassed!
