The design of this cup is based on the Stolistes Cup Admission Badge. It features a bowl that represents a crescent, beneath which is a circle and a tetrahedron base. These three sections represent the three elements of water, air, and fire. The crescent is the water which is above the firmament, the circle is the firmament, and the triangle the consuming fire below, which is opposed to the celestial fire symbolized by the upper part of the caduceus. The cup is a symbol of spiritual receptiveness.
Made of wood, 8″ high by 4″ wide with painted leather petals and a separate lid.
