Carmelite Order

Photo of three hexagrams around a Carmelite Cross on a crest at Albox parish church, Almeria province, Spain, is courtesy of evissa who published it on Flickr. 
On a web page about THE CARMEL EMBLEM I saw a pentagram not a hexagram and the caption tells us that this is the star of Mary, but
Some think that the central star was originally thought of as an opening, not a star, which represented the cave in which Elijah sheltered when the Lord appeared to him as the still small wind.

Glass Mosaic

Photo of Glass Mosaic Star of David is courtesy of Felicia Poes from WeBeTilin' Studios Elmira, New York, who published it on Flickr and wrote to me:

I am a Mosaic Artist and this was an early piece of mine. It has hebrew text cut from an old hebrew childrens book decoupaged on the surface. It is then covered with hand cut stained glass tiles and grouted. The grout was sealed with a gold leaf finish.
