Before the first gods were born, human beings adored nature and the spirits of mother earth were represented by unknown symbols, animal totems that protected them from bad luck and illnesses. Those amulets and talisman were used across the Mediterranean, from east to west and vestiges can still be found all over.
In Formentera, in the cave of La Mola which faces east within deep galleries now in ruins, nineteenth-century archaeologists confirmed they found an amulet in the remains of a tomb. As proof, just a blurred photograph, almost completely dark, with the silhouette of a human figure. Between the hands of a mummified buried lady, a sparkle reveals an amulet in the shape of a crowned figure.
This is just the beginning of a story, but the amulet, universal and protective symbol, shelters and accompanies us in these uncertain times, if with faith and strength we allow it to.
