What is a Labrys? Fun tidbit: A labrys is a double-sided hatchet or axe commonly used in ancient European, African, and Asian matriarchal societies as both a weapon and a harvesting tool. Greek artwork depicts the Amazon armies of Europe wielding labrys weapons. Amazons were known to be ferocious and merciless in battle, but once victorious they ruled with justice. In addition, the labrys also played a part in ancient mythology. Demeter, the goddess of the earth, used a labrys as her scepter. Today, the labrys is a feminist symbol of strength and self-sufficiency. (Yes, some folks associate the symbol with lesbianism, but I claim the feminist definition.)
