Eguzkilore translated from Basque language to English means Flower of the Sun (Silver Thistle)
A Basque Mythology tells that at the
beginning of time, when men began to populate the earth, neither sun nor
moon existed and they were immersed in great darkness, frightened by
numerous creatures, such as dragons, witches, flying horses, geniuses,
Finally, in desperation, they decided to ask AMALUR (mother earth in Basque) for help.
At the insistence AMALUR told them: «My children, you ask for help and I will offer it to you. I will create a luminous being that you will call ILARGI (Moon) ».
Thus, AMALUR created the moon, which with its pale brightness illuminated the night.
At first the men did not dare to go out but, seeing that the evil geniuses fled from the light of ILARGI,
they came out to celebrate. It so happened that the fright of the
geniuses did not last forever and, little by little, they got used to
its light and soon came out of their pits again and harassed the humans.
The men came again to AMALUR asking for something more powerful.
- «AMALUR. We are very grateful to you because you have given us the mother moon, but we need something more powerful since the geniuses do not stop persecuting us ».
- "Okay," said AMALUR, I will create an even more luminous being that you will call EGUZKI (Sun).
And AMALUR created the Sun. In this way, the sun would illuminate the day and the moon the night.
It was so big and bright and hot that even the men had to get used to it little by little. Thanks to its heat and light, plants grew and even more importantly, the geniuses and witches could not get used to the great clarity of the day and since then they have only been able to go out at night. But, the men came again to AMALUR to ask for protection during the night, since at night the geniuses kept coming out to harass them. And that was when AMALUR created a flower so beautiful that, upon seeing it, the beings of the night would believe that it was EGUZKI himself and would flee in terror.
That flower is EGUZKILORE (Flower of the Sun). And until today, this is the symbol of protection that defends homes from Evil Spirits, Witches, Geniuses of disease, Storms, Lightning and other enemies of Man.
That is why the Eguzkilore is placed at the entrances of the doors of Basque houses, to protect themselves from evil spirits.
