After I went through my First Communion, my priest gave us a little wooden block that depicted Mary, a person, angels, and some other stuff. It was “Byzantine Art” it said. However, there is something I don’t understand in the picture.
A person, maybe a saint, is holding a black orb in front of Mary, about a foot in diameter. I was wondering… anyone know what this is? Is it some Wiccan or Pagan symbol maybe? I’ve been searching the web, but have found nothing. If you really need it, I can take a picture and post it here. Any help is great, because I’d like to know what is!
