Revelation 6:7 – 6:8
“When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see!” And behold, a pale horse, and he who sat on it, his name was Death. Hades followed with him. Authority over one fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with famine, with death, and by the wild animals of the earth was given to him.”
The weight of death follows us in the immensity of time, with pale colours for the emptiness and reds tones for the blood that flows through our perception of time, falling into the immensity as the water does in a waterfall attracted by the inevitable force of gravity, submissive to be part of the cycle that everything is part of, but we want to denied, we wanted to be over everything, we want to tame the cycle, tame it, forgetting that we are just another simple part of this cycle, and death is just another needed step.
A golden truth, godless, nameless, endless, just part of life.
Everything begins because of everything finishes, everything finishes because everything begins.
This is an amulet made of solid bronze, you can carry it with you as a reminder of the fact that we all die. The weight of this amulet symbolises the death as an inevitable and important part of life, inviting its owner to embrace this fact, live the life to the fullest and to get rid of all the fears that stop you from doing it.
