Appearing in petrographs throughout the ancient world, the chevron - the V shape - can be considered to be one of the oldest symbols in human history, appearing as early as 6000 BC.
This shape is found in ancient architecture most commonly in a fret, or frieze, which is the wide central molding, decorated with bas-relief, generally found atop a base of columns common in Greek and Roman buildings, but appearing as well in Persian and ancient Egyptian architecture.
This is where my fascination with the use of this shape resides - in the meticulous crafting, number symbology, and knowledge of universal harmonic, rhythmic and proportional laws present in ancient architecture.
The Band of Light is the first representation of a study of these architectural shapes; a mysterious knowledge written into structures not in explicit text, but in harmony, proportion, myth, and symbol.
Encrusted with sapphires, a stone believed to represent lightness and joy, with depth of beauty and thought, the Band of Light is an amulet to aid you in enlightening and discovering your truth.
