Baptism shell Burgos without cross On request Two sizes The most common is 11.3cm x 10.8cm Delivery time: 15/20 days (approximately) It is customary in the Christian tradition that the baptismal shell is a gift from a close relative or godparents. A precious gift that the baptized will keep for use in the baptism of their children. The symbolism of the baptismal shell is very strong. As you know, the most widespread way of baptizing the Roman Catholic Church is to pour water on the head of the baptized person. And to pour the water the priest uses the shell, which looks like an open hand and symbolizes Christian charity. In this way, the baptized person becomes part of the family of the Church. In addition, the seashell, and especially the scallop shell, is the Christian symbol of baptism and pilgrimage. If we look at the symbolism, the birth of Aphrodite of a shell has an obvious connection. The birth of the baptized person who becomes part of that great Family. The shell, by evoking the waters where it is formed, participates in the symbolism of water's own fertility. In Chinese Buddhism, the shell is a symbol of luck and prosperity. And in the Aztecs, the God of the moon had as a symbol the shell, representing the birth, the generation.
