Three Fishes Safety Matches Made in Sweden Matchbook Sticker (MB470)

What I particularly love about the three fish is its universality.  Islam, Buddhism, Jainism, Hinduism, and Christianity all use a triune fish, or often three fish with one head as a graphical representation of threefold unity.  The traditional symbol of the fish is made from two identical arcs that face one another and intersect.  In Islam the 3 fish can mean Allah, Adam, and Muhammad.  In the early drawings the three fish share a head, one fish representing essence, one representing soul, one representing deeds.  Though the tail of the animals remains distinct, they share a head, making the symbol profoundly clarifying as a way to know God.  When the fish are drawn with the arcs, there is perfect unity and balance from a mathematical perspective, too, suggesting that the manifestation of this symbol in many faiths is embedded in the way the world is made.

The image you see is exactly what we use to produce your bespoke sticker.  All stickers are custom made.  (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)
