The Wheel of Fortune (Rota Fortuna) is one of the most enduring of ancient philosophical or religious concepts. It was pivotal in Ancient Greek and Roman Paganism and smoothly transitioned into Christianity, aided by the Roman philosopher, Boethius in his 523 treatises, The Consolation of Philosophy. Its popularity grew with Christianity’s spread, represented in art, including Chaucer and Shakespeare, for two. Its popularity among the common folk who were most likely to be affected by misfortune resulted in widespread reliance on amulets representing the Wheel of Fortune. cathedral windows and literature. This amulet is slightly under 5/8" diameter, made by the open face mold technique, with high relief representation of an eight-spoke wheel with a low domed hub, and the edge scalloped, doubling the image as a floral reference. It has been professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored. It is mounted on a gilt necklace for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
