Coin of Fortune
Have you ever thought of the possibility that all your wishes could come true if only you would pick up a lost coin? Have you ever in your childhood told your fortune by tearing off the petals of a daisy: love, hatred... Have you ever encountered the power of Fortune, hearing it whisper: if only you would have chosen a different course of action, all things would have been different.
Divine interference, signs of fortune, fatal events and more than that is minted, encoded, burnished into the coin of Fortune.
On the coin's silver reverse, the waning moon slides away lightly brushing against a wafting cloud. It vanishes, disappears without trace, leaving the sky wrapped in darkness and mystery, open to chance.
On the coin's obverse, the golden sun reigns over the heaven. The circle that stands for its daily round is the logical and symbolic sign for the complete, confined and self-contained world—the powerful serpent of destiny. The overwhelming power of the sun leaves to man no choice, but to succumb, to willingly accept submissiveness and recognize his mission.
The two sides of the coin signify the two aspects of man's existence - freedom and predestination.
