A Lunar Pendant from Morocco
with Five Moons

This is an interesting form of a crescent amulet, in that it has five moons, hung in a way that suggests the phases of the moon. It may be pointed out here that five is the common apotropaic number.

This amulet was photographed in the Moroccan crafts store Marrakech Express. I am extremely grateful to the store for letting me photograph everything in their store.
