  • Sun symbol inspired by the ancient Greek sanctuary of Delphi. 🏛

Best known for its oracle, who was consulted about important decisions throughout the ancient classical world. 
Delphi is situated on the slope of Mount Parnassus and it has several archeological sites as part of the ancient sanctuary. I saw this symbol in a stone balcony overlooking the coastal plain, on the way down from the main site(presided by the Temple of Apollo) to the gymnasium and the Temple of Athena Pronaia.  This is a reproduction of that symbol which, although not part of the heritage sites, is probably another reference to the Sun god Apollo.
Its location is spectacular and  I was even greeted by some kittens while resting there, you can see the original piece in the last picture 🐈☀

The ornament is made out of polymer clay. A metal screw hook and jute have been added for hanging.

The TAROT de MARSEILLES 2 of CUPS EMBLEMATIC HISTORY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<
The name Delphoi comes from the same root as δελφύς delphys, "womb" and may indicate archaic veneration of Gaia at the site. Delphi, Δελφοί is famous as the ancient sanctuary that grew rich as the seat of Pythia, the oracle consulted about important decisions throughout the ancient classical world.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<
Moreover, the Greeks considered Delphi the navel (or center) of the world, as represented by the stone monument known as the Omphalos of Delphi. The word for dolphin is δελφίνι (delphini). The oldest depiction of 2 cups, with dolphins spring forth out of them, is found on ancient coins minted at PHOKIS, Delphi. Circa 480-475 BC, making the symbolic combination found on the Marseille 2 of Cups, one of the oldest traceable emblems in the western world. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<
Delphoi is symbolic of human parentage and bloodlines, and their reverence. The words for sibling (brother, sister) in Greek is αδελφός / αδελφή (adelphos/adelphi). Pythagoras says of the 2 of Cups, "Honour thy parents and thy nearest kin ;" EROS when depicted riding on the back of a dolphin, is the GUARDIAN of bloodlines. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<
Tarot artist monogram at bottom left = Omphalos of Delphi. 
Dolphins springing like ovaries at top, = the "womb" of Delphi, 
Tarot artist monogram at bottom right = Omphalos of Delphi, Monogram on card to right, looks like ovaries.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<
Torch with flames stands between, and divides 2 cups, and dolphins. This could suggests the 2 cups to represent the male sexual element.
