Warrior's Shield Pendant
This Shield of protection is a Celtic design based on the numbers 3 and 4, which enable magical powers to come into play that help provide circles of protection and other important esoteric forces to enhance well being.
The central design in this work is a Quatrefoil composed of 4 circles interlocked into magical Celtic Knots.
These circles are constructed by using the 4 corners of a square as the center points of the circles.
They repesent the four corners of the Earth, the 4 winds, the 4 elements: earth, air, water, and fire. Most importantly these points represent the 4 angelic guardians. Rhe quatrefoil is a symbol of good luck as in the four leaf clover. One of several world symbols, this design is where the 4 realms of North, South, East, and west are joined and the 4 elemental angelic guardians bring protection to those who wear this amulet.
Also in this design, the ancient Celts included the magical trinity of interlocking rings of 3. Captured at the edge of the mail quatrefoil are 4 sets of 3 interlocking circles. 3 is a symbol of luck and invokes the 3 fates. Circles overlapping creates a "Triple Vesica" bringing perfection in thought, word and deeds, as well as helping find love, enhance power, and bring wisdom. The Magic of 2 is assimilated in the legend of St. Patrick as the magical shamrock, and of course manifest in the Christian Trinity.
May the wearing of this amulet bring protection from harm and all evil influences as well as all the other marvelous magic of this powerful symbol.
