AGNUS DEI
ONE OF MY FAVORITE PIECES
Our German collector shares, "This  is one of my favourite pieces. All pieces are in the form of a heart. In my opinion the beads are from jade in the form of a heart. The center and the box are both from brass. The heart with Agnus Dei on it is a 'breverl'.
+
Inside there is a little picture, [and] a letter for the Lord or a little piece of relic. I don´t know it exactly because a good piece must be closed. If you open them and look inside the secret and the help from the Lord [goes] away."

SMALL BLUE HEART BEADS
A precious rosary made of small blue hearts.  This rosary fits inside the heart shaped metal box, along with the small hand made pouch called an 'Agnus Dei'




~ WHAT is an AGNUS DEI? ~

 They are small discs of round or oval wax impressed with a symbol of a lamb often bearing a flag or a cross on one side and other symbols on the other.  Papal Coat of Arms,  figures or names of saints are common.  It is a sacramental made to be worn around the neck.  It is believed to have started in Rome about the 5th century during the last days of the overthrow of paganism in that city. For more information and history, see:
