Motherhood/fatherhood parenting amulet.
A parents sacrifice.....

I die for those I love! Je meur pour ceux qui j'aime

This wax seal pendant was cast from an antique stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

This seal features a Pelican and her nest of chicks. the French motto around the imagery states 'Je meur pour ceux qui j'aime', which translates to 'I die for those I love'.

Pelicans have featured extensively in heraldry, generally using the Christian symbolism of the pelican as a caring and self-sacrificing parent. Heraldic images featuring a "pelican vulning" refers to a pelican injuring herself, while a "pelican in her piety" refers to a female pelican feeding her young with her own blood, from a self inflicted wound to the breast.

The image of a Pelican feeding her young has been a popular image down the ages and is associated with family, nurture and parental sacrifice.

This pendant is one of the bigger ones in my shop and it has a diameter of 22mm. Lengthways its 28mm.
