Description
Tanit was Goddess of the moon, one of the most powerful deities in the Phoenician pantheon. Traders carried her cult as far west as Spain, and the ruins of her temple at ancient Carthage are still impressive today. Like the moon, she is a mysterious lady, one whose secrets are sometimes hidden by darkness from the sight of men. At other times, her beauty is revealed in full and shining glory. Centuries ago, some unknown person gave this lovely votive to win the favor of the Goddess. Radiating from its graceful form, we feel a benevolent power as ageless and eternal as the moon itself. - (PF.1095)
