Pentacle Steel Finish Sporran Flap
The 5-pointed star (often called a Pentagram) is a symbol nearly as old as man himself. From ancient times, these stars were folded into a broader group of protective symbols imbued with special significance and power by the wearer, collectively called Pentacles. Pentacles function much as the Magical Staves of other cultures: intended to serve as a visual demonstration of an intention or prayer. In the early years of the Christian church, the Pentagram was adopted as a symbol of Christ on the cross. Perhaps as the result of this accepted representation, the inversion of the Pentagram was later ascribed to Occult rituals.
This is a unique Celtic Leatherworks product in that we are able to offer this five-point star design in either upright (Pentacle Star, seen on bottom right) or inverted position (Pentagram, seen on bottom left!
