Eco Tote Bag / Winter Solace The Pilgrimage
Yes! There is meaning behind the design and a story.
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:1-2
On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11
The star represents the star the Magi followed to find the child Jesus.
The small designs at the tips of the star represent gold. Apparently, gold was formed by the collision of stars, and supernovae events–which then ended up in the Earth’s crust. (Crazy, right?!)
The thorny, leafy branches within the star represent myrrh. Myrrh is a resin that comes from certain thorny trees and has been used throughout history for perfume, incense and medicine.
The branches reaching for the star represent frankincense, which is another tree resin and comes from Boswellia trees. It has been used for centuries in making perfume and incense.
“Winter Solace is a time to take a breath…and also gently acquire some inner resources and practices for the year ahead.” This online retreat is hosted by The Pilgrimage and will include various workshops, large and small, which will focus on the theme of identity.
