We created a pendant in the shape of a fish. It is an artwork with great religious value as it was one of the most important Christian symbols. The initials of the greek words Jesus Christ Son of God Saviour form the word Ichthys, meaning fish in greek. The pendant is made of silver 925° and is offered with a black satin cord.

The fish is one of themost popular Christian symbols. It symbolized Christ himself, as it is proven by the initial letters of the greek words Jesus Christ Son of God Saviour, that spelt out Ichthys (ΙΧΘΥΣ), meaning fish in greek. It is probably the most famous symbol of Christians after the Cross. The fish symbol was used by the first Christians especially in the catacombs and in funerary inscriptions as a symbol of salvation.
Types of fish were depicted in ancient vases, coins and frescos. The fish was sacred to the Greco-Roman mythology, where it held symbolic meaning of change and transformation. Nowadays, the fish feature prominently in art and literature.
