The Sigil of Defense combines Ancient Symbols of Protection: the ""Luaithrindi"" a pattern for Protection, the three armed ""Triadic"" Spirals, and eight Magical ""Ciphers of the Angels,"" all interlocked in one original design to create a powerful ""Shield of Protection.""
The eight ""Luaithrindi"" patterns surrounding this amulet hold the Magical Power of Confusion over an enemy's mind- creating the opportunity to either Attack or Defend. Luaithrindi translates as: the center of the circle where Heaven and Earth meet. Starting at any “Luaithrindi” symbol, one can follow a symbolic Labyrinth - a maze where Infinite Life Paths are presented to us. Following the labyrinth you will find four Triple Spirals representing the ""Weavers of Divine Fate"" -the Three Goddesses: Clotho, [the Spinner], Lachesis [drawer of lots], and Atropos [the inevitable] who weave the thread of each person's Destiny.
It is believed each person is a center point of light and that their radiating light interacts with the light of those of others around to complete a ""woven web"" of interconnected life force. This notion that human fate was spun around a person at birth by divine Spinners was popular in Greek mythology, poetry, and literature.
In the circle at the center of the design are the ""Seals of the Seraphim,"" These symbols provide Magical Angelic Protection as well as help enhance Spiritual Growth.
These Angelic seals were revealed to King Solomon as an avenue of guidance in his Magical Kabala. When these symbols are used, the Seraph (a celestial being having three pairs of wings) who is associated with the particular symbol is bound by their Seal to help the individual in need. The symbols are from an ancient Magical script called ""Writing of the Angels"" and translate as: ""The Severe Justice of Almighty God, God of victory, will protect (the wearer."")
This design was conceived by artist Chris Bennett to provide the wearer Defense against any Evil.
