Phaistos Disc & Meander Earrings
Handcrafted set of earrings depicting the Phaistos Disc & the Meander. The Phaistos Disc consists of 241 symbols including Linear A, Linear B and hieroglyphs. The Phaistos Disc was found in the basement of the Minoan palace of Phaistos and dates back to the 17th century BC.
Its diameter is approximately 15cm, its width is 2cm and it is made of clay. On one side there are 122 symbols, while on the other 119. The symbols using vertical lines are divided into groups (words). The Meander has been the oldest Greek symbol of victory, unity and eternal life. It was used during the Geometric Period (1050 BC) mainly in the decoration of temples and vessels but also as a seal. As a symbol it has been used mainly in decoration, but in fact it is a Greek seal, as most Ancient Greek objects bear the design of the meander. It was born during the Prehistoric Age, but was revived once again during the Geometric Period. The meander is found in the Acropolis but also in the Byzantine Culture, and yet in many tombs in Asia Minor -amongst them the tomb of King Midas of Phrygia- and in vessels of the Geometric Period; where the symbol of the meander seems to be a development of the continuous spiral of the Mycenaean Era.
