Persia, 18th Century
This large beautiful work of art will be a treasured keepsake, whether as a bold piece of jewelry, or as a charm. Exquisitely carved out of sterling silver, it is engraved with the opening sacred words of Ana Bekoach, a mystical prayer written in the first century by the great sage and Kabbalist, Rabbi Nehunia Ben Hakannah. Pleading for Israel's redemption from exile, Ana Bekoachh is a unique formula built of 42 letters, which is also thought to be a secret 42-letter name (or names) of G-d.
The Kabbalists consider Ana Bekoach to be one the most mystical and powerful of all prayers, with the power to overpower negative forces and energies while drawing Divine protection and blessing and opening doors of spiritual growth.
The center of this Jewish medallion from Persia is set with an oval turquoise, as blue has been used as a "lucky" color in the Middle East for 5000 years.
Amulets were intended to guard their owners' families and property from natural disasters, spells, and evil spirits.
