high fire clay, glazes
Set of 4 beautiful oval and disc-shaped stone-like handmade Fish symbol Mosaic tiles created from high fire clay.
I handmade each tile individually, carved then fired them, glazed and back in the kiln for another firing. The larger oval tiles average 1-1/2 inches x 1-1/4 inches by 1/8 inch thick (40mm x 30mm x 4mm) and the smaller disc-shaped tiles are 1-1/4" in diameter (30mm).
Perfect for your mosaic tiling projects, jewellery boxes, table designs or where ever you may want to put them, have fun! They are waterproof, durable and will never fade!
** Each set is unique, one of a kind. What you see in the photos are what you will receive. Colour intensity may vary from PC monitor to smartphone screen.**
The Fish Symbol:
Originally, the fish symbol, two interweaved crescent moons, was used by the Greeks, Romans and other pagans as a symbol of fertility usually associated with goddesses.
During the life of Jesus, fish was a staple food for the people and we see many instances where fish was mentioned in the four gospels.
So it was not surprising that the early Christians chose the fish symbol as a password or secret symbol when they faced persecutions for their faith during the first century after Christ. And as it was widely used by Greek, Romans and other pagans during that time, it was a symbol that did not arouse much suspicion. The Christian fish symbol was then used as a marking on tombs and other secret meeting places by the early Christians.
