We collected this pendant while traveling through the desert villages of Northwest India (Rajastahan). To make it complete, we add a free chain (16-18" or 30") or vegan leather cord (black or brown).
The flower of life is a universal symbol which can be found in places of worship across the world and throughout time. The oldest have been found in Ancient Egypt at the Temple of Osiris. But they are also found in Japan, China, India and across the Middle East and Europe. The symbols is believed by all of these cultures to represent the emergence of life from the "Great Void". Inside the Flower of Life can be found the Seed of Life, the repetition of which creates this symbol. People across the ancient and modern worlds have used this symbol with prayer and meditation to better connect with themselves and with all life. All of us can discover ourselves within this sacred geometric network that is the Flower of Life.
Set into the center of the pendant is a piece of turquoise. Turquoise represents the spiritual growth and ever-changing nature of human spirituality.
