Atu IX:

"The Hermit"

This harness is perhaps my most popular designs and also my first collaboration with the help of a good friend of mine (also a leathersmith)

The ninth card of the Major Arcana.

All the world’s major religions involve a prophet or holy man retreating from the world for a period and then returning with hidden knowledge.  This is true in the stories of Jesus, Mohammad and Buddha.  The Hermit is such a prophet.  The light that shines in the lantern is the unicursal hexagram, the “silver star” alluded to in the lines of the front of the harness.
