Symbol meaning

Nails symbolize bringing things together, both good and bad. Iron is a very magical metal and the rust in it symbolizes blood and the color red. Nails are considered to protect the home and its inhabitants. The belief goes back to ancient Rome. Pliny the Elder advised hammering three iron nails into the top of the door frame to protect the house. In addition, iron nails were hammered into the inner walls of the houses to protect the inhabitants from, among other things, plague and bad luck. In medieval England, iron nails were nailed directly into the ground. The slow rusting of the nails in the damp soil was seen as a symbol of the slow healing of the disease. In the imagery of Christianity, three iron nails depict the crucifixion of Christ.

Ritual use

Placing three iron nails on an altar or carrying them around like an amulet is believed to protect the wearer from illness, suffering and misfortune.
