Medieval Ave Maria Badge



Medieval "Ave Maria " badge. Based of an original and cast from a soapstone mold that I carved it still needs some work.

Worn by Medieval Christians to show their piety, much like modern Americans wear flag lapel pins to show patriotism. It was NOT worn as a form of so called Mary worship as many bigots have ignorantly said.

In medieval times it would be lead, as they had no concept of leads dangers. Mine is pewter, but chemically treated to age and appear as lead.
