Throughout the span of recorded human history, Pine cones have served as a symbolic representation of Human Enlightenment, the Third Eye and the Pineal Gland..It is considered by many to be our biological Third Eye, the "Seat of the Soul," the “Epicenter of Enlightenment” -- and its sacred symbol throughout history, in cultures around the world, has been the Pine cone..     Catholic religious tradition is intricately interwoven with pine cones, perhaps most prominently atop the sacred staff carried by the Pope himself. The Coat of Arms of the Holy See, found on the Vatican flag among other places, features a stacking of three crowns suspiciously similar in shape to a pine cone. The very name, “Holy See,” appears to many to be a direct reference to the Third Eye…   One theory proposes that the Pine cone was actually the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, purported in Genesis to have been eaten by Eve at the urgings of a serpent, and leading to the eviction of mankind from the Garden of Eden. This concept proves particularly provocative given the consistent reappearance of pine cone images with serpents and snake references across cultures.Pine cones regularly appear framed in Freemason Octagons on the ceilings of Masonic Lodges, and Large Freemason sculptures on the side of the Whitehall Building in the New York Financial District goes so far as to depict two enormous intertwining snakes spiraling up to a pine cone overlooking Battery Place (which is striking similarity to the Staff of Osiris).Third Eye Pine cone Talismans represent a reclamation of the emblematic power and natural beauty of the Pine cone, the Pineal Gland, and the ancient historical heritage accompanying one of Mother Nature’s most compelling organic symbols.   This Antique victorian OVERSIZE  coffin casket box has such rich detail with pine cones all over it and its original pink lining and stuffing under that.   It measures 6" long x 4 1/3" wide x 4 1/2" tall .
