The Amulets of Love
There exist “eternal” themes in literature and art. Epochs and generations replace each other… But love and faithfulness, wisdom and well-being, and family values immutably remain the most important notions for people. Poetry and songs are composed about them, masterpieces of art are created.
A belief in talismans has come down to us from the distant past, talismans that summon assistance in the search for one’s only soulmate, to find love and happiness…
Love, like an invisible bond, connects kindred spirits. Irrespective of the subject, talismans of love are always made up of two parts, tied with a knot or fastened with a bead—the symbol of faith. Talismans consist of two small lathed figures, and are made according to an ancient ritual for the preparation of love talismans. An important part of this ritual is the random splitting of the solid cedar timber into two halves. After all, in life, love also seems to come randomly, but in reality it comes by the will of Providence…
Ancient symbols and signs that attract happiness, the observance of age-old traditions, the positive energy of the Siberian cedar—all this is combined together in each talisman of love in a sincere and refined desire—to find the wonderful feeling of love and preserve it for all one’s life.
The talismans in question are made with spirit, with wise and good thoughts. After all, the more happiness and love there is in the world, the brighter and more joyous it is to live in.
THE ETERNAL LOVE AMULET
According to tradition, any bond consists of two parts, fastened by a knot. The Eternal Love bonded amulet is representation of the ancient legend about the origin of the Siberian River “Ob”, which was born out of the love of young Biy and Katun, the khan’s daughter:
“… Katun the khan’s daughter and Biy the poor shepherd fell in love with each other. The cruel khan found out, and ordered that the lovers be separated. Biy and Katun then decided to flee. They escaped in the mountains, hiding from the khan’s servants. The mountains were finally behind them, before them was a plain. The lovers now had nowhere to hide, and the pursuers were so close! … The lovers embraced, bowed down to the ground, and became rivers, joining forever and running ever further as the deep, mighty, Siberian Ob River.”
The male and female figures are carved from a sheet of Siberian cedar that has been split into two and joined by a Heart – one heart for two.
THE SOULMATES AMULET
According to ancient tradition, any bond consists of two parts, fastened by a knot. The “Soulmates” bonded amulet is carved from a single piece of cedar that has been split into two. The strength and energy of the male is symbolized by the Sun, the small female figure adorned with a Plant is the symbol of Life. Two lathed cedar beads are two individualities, which blossom in happy union, and on the reverse side of the amulet is a Heart – one heart for two.
THE YIN-YANG AMULET
According to tradition, any bond consists of two parts, fastened by a knot. The “Yin-Yang” bonded amulet is the ancient sign of the Unity of the female (Yin) and the male (Yang) beginnings, fastened with the symbol of Faith—a bead. The wise men of the East advise: “Hold the opposite substances Yin and Yang, grasp the Living Fire of Truth.” The sign of the Sun on the reverse is the symbol of the Energy of the Unity.
THE FLOWER OF SUN AMULET
Two legendary natural materials have been combined as a health charm: cedar and listvenite. From ancient times, it has been believed that listvenite provides protection from snake bites, and relieves headaches and bone fractures. This stone possesses great power. And the cedar accumulates positive energy and shares it with people: the Siberian cedar is generous with health!
It is not by chance that the listvenite is enclosed in a cedar frame: in this combination its power will not harm the owner, but become a shield against sickness and negative energy. The charm-like qualities for health are intensified by the ancient symbol of life and blossoms – the flower of sun.
