A few weeks ago I traveled to Jerusalem and took my
daughter to a unique exhibition in the Biblical Lands
Museum. The exhibition was about the ancient techniques
that were used thousands of years ago to produce the blue
color/pigments used for dyeing linen and wool. Since the
ancients associated the blue color as the color of
sovereignty, the sky, the realms of the gods, divinity,
and sacredness, there were a few ancient amulets that were
adorned with Lapis Lazuli and turquoise. One of these
ancient amulets was fabricated from pure gold with the
names of the famous four angels (out of seven) in the
Jewish tradition. It was a protective amulet, and so, I’ve
decided to create my own unique version...
The Hebrew word for Angel is Mal’akh, and it literally
means messenger. An angel in these traditions is a
supernatural being which acts as an intermediary between
the Creator and humanity. Other roles that can be found in
the ancient myths are protection and guidance, as well as
carrying out God’s will.
There are ten different hierarchies of angels found in the
Jewish tradition, and for this amulet, I’ve used these
four because of the various unique role of each one.
The Four Angels amulet design consist of four facets, each
carrying one of the names of the four angels. Each one of
these angels stands on one side of God’s throne with the
divine spirit at the center.
The four angels are: Michael (Mikha’el in
the original Hebrew version) which represents God’s
kindness and stands up for the children of mankind.
Gabriel (Gavriel in
Hebrew meaning “God is my strength”) who performs acts of
justice and power.
Raphael (meaning, “it
is God who heals”) who represents God’s healing forces.
Uriel (meaning “God is
my light”) who leads us to our destiny.
These four angels are mentioned in the “Kriat Shema”
To my right Michael,
to my left Gabriel,
in front of me Uriel,
behind me Raphael,
and over my head God's Shekhinah
(From the Jewish Kriat Shema, a prayer recited before the
Shema Yisrael when going to sleep).
At the center/bottom of the pendant, there is an engraving
in the same original Assyrian Hebrew fonts of the Torah
with the name of the owner of the talisman and the name
of his/her mother. This type of engraving can be
found in special healing and protective ancient
Derived from the ancient structure of the Flower of Life.
It is named after the Archangel Metatron. Metatron appears
in Jewish tradition, Christian tradition, and in some
aspects of Islam. Metatron is in charge of all of creation
and is considered an Archangel as well as a judge.
