The globe and the cross, one of which sits on each side of this pendant, are two of the most potent religious symbols the world has ever known. The Globe itself, when held by a holy figure such as a saint, or God, represents the entirety of the universe. In Christian tradition this image is known as “salvator mundi” or the saviour of the world, while, for Buddhists it represents the “cintamani” or wishing stone, held by the Ksitigarbha. In Western Scientific tradition these globes depicted in artwork are often interpreted as philosopher’s stones.
