Pentagram

$ 1300

Size: 30,3 x 22,6 cm

Materials: Watercolour on watercolour paper

For my fourth symbol painting, I chose the Pentagram.

Did you know that, despite what some believe, the pentagram has been a potent protection against evil, shielding the wearer and the home.

The five elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit) are assigned to the points of the pentagram in some Pagan traditions.

If the single point is upwards, it signifies the spirit ruling matter. With two points up and one (spirit) down, the emphasis is on the descent of spirit into matter, according to some traditions.

Historical depictions of the pentagram were as likely to be one way as the other. The direction rarely made a difference. Even today, you shouldn’t assume that an inverted pentagram is Satanic, as it is just likely to be Masonic, Wiccan, or simply upside-down.

The geometric proportions of the regular pentagram are those of the Golden Section. The Golden Proportion is one beloved of artists since the Renaissance.

The circled pentagram has become a symbol of witchcraft, and the personal, individual nature of the pagan religious path.

I combined dropping, blotting and splattering for this one. If you choose to do so, this symbol can also be reversed.
