Pentagram Gate

This occult-looking pentagram decorates a very old cast-iron gate on Main Street in Richmond.

While I've known about this little tidbit for awhile, I still can't rightly understand what the motivation would be for an inverted pentagram in this instance. Puzzling evidence, as the man sayeth.

it probly an eastern star, the female equivalent of the masons

Could be Order of the Eastern Star, but if so, they took some liberties and oversimplified the motif.

there is also a tomb stone behind the old crematorium in eastern cemetary, next door to cave hill where a woman had the same pentagram on her headstone and after some research on her, my wife and i discovered she was an eastern star
