This ancient Roman chalcedony intaglio is beautifully engraved and depicts all three symbols of abundance in one intaglio. It is absolutely powerful iconography.
1. The crescent moon & one star means timelessness and it is a powerful symbol of renewal & guidance.
2. The modus with the three ears of wheat motif would have been an allegory referring to plenty, prosperity and fortune.
3. The ant is an example of determination and hard work, abundance, strength & courage. Despite its size, the ant is a constant reminder that nothing comes easy in life without diligence and willpower.
