Superb pendant representing an endless knot: protects against danger and keeps away evil spirits
A very old and almost universal symbol, whose origins go back to the Sumerian culture. It is also found in the Celtic culture. It is often used to protect against danger and to ward off evil spirits.
Its design forms an endless knot which symbolises infinity and eternity. It contains in its centre a solar cross (swastika) which divides it into four equal parts.
For the Sumerians, the four-sided symbols represent the four creator gods: of heaven, fire, earth and water. With its 4 sides, it is also linked to the movements of the sun, the solstices and equinoxes, forming the 4 seasons.
