On 5-6th June we experienced one of the rarest Astronomical/Astrological events of our time! Venus transited over the face of the Sun - literally appearing inside its flames! This will probably be the last time we will witness such an event in our lifetime, next time it's going to happen is 2117!!!
I have decided to make two very special talismans to capture this event. For me it meant that I had to wake up in the middle of the night and go to my workshop (at 4am in the morning), but that only added to the magic of the event.
This event has a very important significance for the collective and the individual in many ways. It is probably the reason the Mayan took this year to be so important! The Mayan have put a lot of emphasis on the cycles of Venus in their calendar and have prophesied this event as the return of Quetzalcoatl the "feathered serpent" or 'god of the morning star' which is Venus, entering her morning star phase after uniting with the solar creative force.
To capture the event and to honor the Mayan tradition and their heritage,I have made twounique Talismans-- a pendant and a ring. The pendant is composed from the Mayan symbols of Venus and the Sun, which were fused together exactly at the time of the transit! The ring is composed of the Mayan symbol for Venus and I have made the models in the same traditional design of the ancient Mayan jewelers.I hope Will meet again in 2117
