About the itemOur detailed fish is cast from a 1940s brooch. Almost every religion & culture has adapted the symbol of the fish at some time, and hence the fishes meanings are manifest; and include well being, creativity, knowledge, transformation, femininity, happiness, power and fortitude. Along with the more familiar symbols, the fish is one of the eight auspicious tibetan symbols - a golden fish symbolises the auspiciousness of all living beings, existing in a state of fearlessness, without danger of drowning in the ocean of sufferings, and migrating from place to place freely and spontaneously, just as fish swim freely without fear through water.The earliest origins of the fish in symbolism however are pagan ones - fish represented fertility and often occurred in conjunction with portrayals of goddesses of love and fertility, and indeed in portrayals of the great mother goddess. We have, to some degree, come to know fish symbolism as being connected with christiantity, but this is a fairly latter day adoption, and the use of fish symbols in early Christian works is not in the form we see used in Christianity today ? it was used decoratively and as a sign of rebirth.Fish symbols are far older and wider ranging than mere Christianity; even early man drew fish on cave walls, and many indigenous cultures such as aboriginies and American peoples continue to do so today as a refernce to the fishes qualities.Cast in sterling silver our fish measures 4.8 cm x 1.3 cm.OTHER METALS : This charm is available on the site in sterling silver, but can be made in gold, platinum or palladium by special order.
