History and symbolism
Theobelisk is a monolithic monument that sees its origins in ancient Egypt. Along with the pyramids, it is one of the highest expressions of Egyptian monumental art. It is characterized by the elongated and thin quadrangular shape, ending with a pyramidal tip.
The Egyptians believed that the Sun god dwelled in them, and the Pharaohs used to place them in pairs at the entrances of temples and at specific points in cities in order to promote their fruitfulness and the circulation of benevolent energies. A symbol of the bond between Pharaoh and the deity, the obelisk towers to represent absolute power.
In various cultures and traditions, it was believed that the obelisks, placed at the nodal points of the city, contributed to the sublimation of the energies of the place and brought well -being and fertility to the whole region. The city of Rome has as many as 9 original Egyptian obelisks, which were taken away during the conquest of Egypt.
Obelisks have always been enigmatic monuments, and throughout history they are often found as occult, Masonic and esoteric symbols. The evidence of the phallic form also underscores the power of masculine energies, bearers of fertilizing force in their encounter with the Earth, with feminine, receptive energies.
The obelisk is now used in homes, in small reproductions, as a symbol of fertility and good wishes.
