A delicate piece perfect for ritual and altar use, this petite chalice has been engraved with the triple moon; a symbol representing the three forms of the Triple Goddess within the waxing, full, and waning phases of the moon.
The Triple Goddess represents the divine feminine's connection to the cycles of nature. The Maiden is the spring, new beginnings and possibilities, and the waxing crescent moon. The Mother is the bounty of the earth, summer and early harvest, and the full moon. The Crone is the end of the growth cycle when the leaves turn, the sleeping earth in winter, and the waning crescent moon. All three Goddess archetypes are known individually, but when the three aspects come together in the triple form, their power multiplies, reminding us of the beauty of all the parts of life and renewal through the cycles of the earth. With this inscription on both the front and back faces of the chalice, it makes for a wonderful tool of ritual offering.
The silver plated chalice stands 4 3/4" tall, with a 1 3/4" base and 2" diameter mouth. Its delicate stem has been sculpted with an intricate pattern, providing a nonslip surface for grip and an elegant accent to what is otherwise a simple, refined altar tool.
