star of david

The Star of David, or magen David (‘Shield of David’), is a strong symbol of Jewish identity, and as a hexagram it represents the interaction of the Divine with the mortal. It gets its name from the tradition that David carried a hexagram-shaped shield during his defeat of the giant Goliath. It has strong links with the Kabbalah, and is sometimes known as the Seal of Solomon or the Creator’s Star.

When the Star of David is called the Creator’s Star, the six points each represents a day of the week and the center corresponds to the Sabbath. It is a strong symbol of Jewish identity, and remained so even during the days of Nazi persecution when Jews were forced to wear a yellow hexagram as an identifier. The Star was incorporated into the flag of the State of Israel in 1948. Custom star of david 3d tattoo design. done in morbid tattoo parlor in cash and carry mall Makati Manila, Philippines.
