A bit of Herstory:
Labrys is a symmetrical double axe originally from Crete in Greece, one of the oldest symbols of Greek civilization.
Commonly, the symbol was associated with female divinities and dates to prehistoric times.
The double axe functioned as a tool and hewing axe before it was invested with symbolic function.
Labrys symbolism is found in Minoan, Thracian, and Greek religion, mythology, and art, dating from the Middle Bronze Age onward, and surviving in the Byzantine Empire.
Since the 1970s, It has been used as a lesbian, and feminist, symbol, said to represent women’s strength and self-sufficiency.
