Moreover, the incense burner is made of high-quality wood and finished by hand. It contains symbols of elegant patterns and a metal pentacle the triple moon.
This mathematical pentagram symbol is nowadays used with a circle around it as a talisman. This is the pentacle, known from esoteric circles and (neo-pagan) nature religions such as Wicca. This is one of the oldest symbols in the world. The five points of the star represent the five elements of water, fire, earth, air and ether (spirit). The Triple Moon is a symbol from the Wicca movement. It represents the threefold moon goddess and shows three different stages of the lunar cycle: the waxing, the full and the waning moon.
