POWER OF THE SEA - Brass Inlaid Trident
ACTA NON VERBA is often translated as "actions, not words," but as the Latin word ACTA means "register of events," we felt that "deeds" was a translation more in keeping with the spirit of the motto. We chose to pair this phrase with a trident in keeping with our nautical roots, and also because the trident has been a symbol of power throughout history and mythology. The trident is most closely associated with Poseidon/Neptune, god-king of the sea in Greek and Roman mythology, and the tool has many practical uses. While Neptune used his trident to calm the seas and create earthquakes, sailors applied the tool to fishing and gladiators chose tridents as an offensive and defensive weapon. Whether you are using your own power to shape the world, to fight for your survival, or to combat bad habits, we want you to envision that power as a tool to wield decisively. Poseidon and the gladiators are known for their deeds, not for any speeches made. Discussing intentions is important, but growth begins with action.
Great prouducts, captures the power of the sea and shows the heart of a sailor..
This is the fourth pendant I've purchased and absolutely love it! I switch back and forth between the 4 of them depending on my mood. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing what you come up with next
