SATOR square brass
The SATOR Square is a mystical square created with a five-word Latin palindrome that has been used since ancient times. Palindromes of this type were viewed as wards against the devil, malicious spirits, and the like. It is said that they become confused by the repetition of the letters when they encounter a SATOR square and never pass through the door. In folk magic they have been for various purposes, including for putting out fires, removing jinxes, healing fevers, and to protect cattle from witchcraft. The oldest representation of a SATOR Square was found in the ruins of Pompeii. Squares such as this were often carved into the doors and outer walls of homes.
This SATOR square is engraved in heavy, 18 gauge brushed brass, hand-enameled and backed in burgundy velvet. Place it on your altar or in your home to ward and protect. 3.25″ diameter.
