Fish (Dzukik) Charm

$ 70.00 $ 80.00
This very special charm called "Dzukik" (which means "a little fish" in Armenian) was inspired by the ancient image depicted on the walls of an Armenian church in Jerusalem

Being a Christian symbol the fish has many theological overtones: Christ fed the 5,000 with 2 fishes and 5 loaves. Christians made an acrostic from the Greek word for fish "ichthys: Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter, i.e. Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior. Early Christians used the fish as a secret code to identify meeting places, tombs, and even other Christians. Legend has it that if an early Christian met a stranger, he or she could draw half of the Ichthys on the ground. If the stranger completed the sketch, they would both know they were Christians.

SIlver charm available in black, white and turquoise enamel.
