Description
Symbolic of Paradise. . . A portrait of Virgin Mary as depicted in a c. 1428 painting of her in the Ghent Altarpiece abides behind the gates. Its burnished silver metal finish is ornamented in enamels and crystals.

The fascinating past. . . Our Heaven's Gates devotional necklace commemorates the panel of Mary from the altarpiece with Shelley's interpretation of architectural elements of the Cathedral of St. Bravo. Since its creation the Ghent altarpiece has been considered one of the masterpieces of European art and a world treasure.

Over the centuries the panels have come close to being destroyed during outbreaks of war and ideological controversies. They were moved and damaged by fire, while some were sold, and still others taken during wars. All the panels were finally returned to the Cathedral of Saint Belgium following World War I.

WowLove this necklace
This is a gorgeous necklace. I just love the Ghent altar masterpiece so this necklace was a must for me. However, I thought maybe a piece was missing, since the gate keeps flying open. Thanks to another reviewer, paintponypatty, I learned that I can use the cross to keep the gate closed. Thanks so much for the tip!
