The star of David is said to be the symbol found on the shield of David the Israelite warrior. The shield was said to be made of leather stretched over interlocking triangles made out of the simplest of metal. However what many people do not know is that before Judaism adopted this symbol, it was known as a hexagram in occultism. It was known as the talisman of Saturn. Used to conjure up spirits in the practice of witchcraft.
