Handmade ancient Greek double-axe pendant, crafted in Silver 925 Gold-plated.

In ancient Crete, the double axe was an important sacred symbol of the Minoan religion. It was the symbol of the arche of the creation. Minoan ''labrys'' (as it was called) has been used as a ritual axe, found in ancient Minoan depictions of the Mother Goddess. Its symbolism is related to the labyrinth and it is believed that the meaning of the word labyrinth is the "house of the double axe".

All of our Silver jewellery carry the metal (925) and the Greek Workshop's stamps.
