According to the explanation included with this beautiful piece of home decor featured on a sticker on the reverse side: The words are said to originate from the reply given by the Delphic Oracle to the Spartans when they were planning a war against Athens: 'Yes, the Gods will be present, but in what form and to what purpose?' [Carl] Jung came across this when, as a student of 19 years, he was studying a Latin collection of analects, or jottings, by Erasmus, the Renaissance scholar and humanist. It is also carved on Jung's tombstone." A wonderful piece of inspirational art that will serve as a lovely reminder. Strung for easy wall hanging, this 8-1/4" (21 cm) by 6-3/4" (17 cm) bronze plaque is hand made and carved in Kinsale, Co Cork, Ireland.
