With spiritual histories dating back to Egyptian and Roman times, the lapis lazuli, tiger eye, carnelian, and malachite used in Pavel Kraus’s works mystify his Offerings. They are, as treasures found in a lost tomb, exquisite charms that offer the same spiritual and mythical gifts that ancient civilizations once attributed to them. The works with lapis lazuli offer a sense of calm, protection, and peace of mind, with heavenly blue accents that are said to send the soul into heavenly contemplation. Paired with the grounding deep browns of the tiger eye, the skyward lapis lazuli is balanced by the protective, logical, and fearless nature of the tiger eye inlay. Accents of carnelian evoke the Sacral Chakra, activating the self along with the five senses, creativity, reproduction, sexuality, and self-gratification. In carnelian, anger and negativity are banished and replaced with a love of life. As the offerings are made to sacred beings sent heaven-bound, the malachite is said to bring good luck, safe travel, and protection. It is said to be a protecting stone that can bring good health, success, and a constancy of affection.

When these semi-precious stones are molded together in the pristine and timeless base of white, black, and yellow marble, the resulting Offerings encapsulate all of the spiritual wishes of health, safe travel, protection, calmness, piece of mind, and a balanced self.
