I have to tell you, I have been interested in religious symbolism at least since high school. Back then I was especially interested in the talisman from the 1958 horror film The Thing That Couldn’t Die. Here is the the talisman from the movie. If you didn’t see it, it was the only thing that could keep the evil head at bay. It consisted of a cross (symbolizing faith or Jesus), the anchor (symbolizing hope), the crown (symbolizing courage, according to the movie) and the fleur de lis (symbolizing the three theological virtues, again according to the movie).
Anyways, I might as well tell you. I am very agnostic now. And maybe even quasi-atheist. I should tell you that first. But I got a symbolic piece of jewelry, from a dollar store, and about twenty years ago FWIW, that has me wondering. What does it symbolize? And what does it mean?
Here is that symbol. You will notice, it has the anchor too, and the cross. But what is that thing in the middle? Looks like a Sun. Is that what it is? And what does that symbolize?
You know, I am not asking anything. But I would just love it if someone downloaded both images to this thread. Because I can’t do it myself.
Yes, I’ve tried. And yes, yes, rest assured I have tried ALL your various advices on how to do it . I still can’t do it.
Thank you in advance for your helpful replies .
