This pouch was inspired by two symbols: the pentagram and the spiral. These two ancient symbols date back thousands of years and their meanings are varied. The pentagram often represents the four elements: earth wind, fire, water and the fifth element of spirit; but it is also often associated with the Goddess, this was more the angle I took. I personally associate the spiral with life and creation.
I have taken a slightly different approach to the pentagram: it is imperfect and doesn’t have equal angles but is in fact made up of five sticks bound together with a rosebud spiral wrapping its way through the star. I chose to add roses to the design as to me these are a perfect natural representation of the Goddess: soft and beautiful (flower) but also harsh and protective (thorns). Roses are also associated with the Greek Goddess of Love Aphrodite.
I hand printed these white cotton pouches with a hand carved spiral pentagram and roses stamp on my etching press. I finished the pouches with red and white poly-satin ribbons, large pearly plastic beads and red wooden beads. The pouches are lined with red taffeta.
They are great for storing all sorts of things, such as: Tarot Cards (the pouch will fit a deck of 70mm x120mm tarot cards), Gem Stones, Rune Stones, Dice, Jewellery etc..
Size: approx. 14,5cm x 25cm
