The ichthys or ichthus from the Greek ikhthýs (ἰχθύς, “fish“) is a symbol containing of two interconnecting arcs that looks a lot like a fish. When I was in kindergarten, I used to draw fish like that because it’s easy to draw and every time I see it in a car bumper, necklaces, or in a painting I remember. But the ichthys has a deeper meaning it was adopted as a Christian symbol and now is known as the sign of the fish or the Jesus fish. Before Christianity adopted the fish symbol, it was known and used by pagans as “the Great Mother”, and “womb”. It was connected to productiveness, birth, and the natural strength of females was recognized also by the Celts, and also in pagan cultures throughout northern Europe. Now a days Christians use of the symbol like ancients Christians by having the symbol you are identifying yourself as a Christian. When ancient Christians, were being persecuted by the Roman Empire a few centuries after Christ, they used the fish symbol to spot meeting places, tombs, or to tell apart friends from enemies (persecutors).
