Art Description

Sculpture: Acrylic, Glow-in-the-Dark Yarn, Acrylic varnish, Thread, Nails on Wood.

The composition based on Yelets lace ornament with the Star of Lada in the center of it.
This ancient Slavic symbol is associated with female power. Lada is the goddess of spring, the patroness of love, hearth and home. The early Slavs used to bring gifts to Lada before the wedding and before sowing bread, they asked her to help settle in a new place, to bring happiness and harmony to the house.
Therefore, interior decorations with the Star of Lada signifies best wishes for family happiness and can be a good gift for a wedding, housewarming, and marriage anniversary.

Symbolism:
The square in a middle of the amulet is a symbol of harmony, a sown field, and a home. Two intertwined ovals symbolize the connection of the female and male principles. The edges of ovals are for 4 cardinal directions.

There is a similar male amulet named the Star of Rus, or The Quadrate of Svarog. Unlike the smooth lines of the Star of Lada, the ellipses in the male symbol are sharp as the tips of a sword.

Glow:
The pattern is contoured by a luminous yarn that glows in the dark with a mysterious greenish soft glow. For the effect to work, the product must be "charged" by light (the brighter the light, the more intense the glow will be; the longer the charging, the longer the effect).

Mounting:
The metal rings are screwed to three corners of the panel so it can be placed horizontally or vertically, depending on the features of the interior and your preferences.
