Abraxas is a magic word of uncertain meaning engraved on initiatory butterfly-shaped talismans. The delicate opening and closing of the butterfly’s wings, as the regular rocking of a swing, represent the extinguishable breath of life, life itself that forever fluctuates in unmoving and circular time.
