Haykal (pentacle talisman) #1

by The Báb

published in The Sources of Babi Doctrine and History, by Denis MacEoin, page 273
Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1992
This is an unidentified pentacle by the Bab, which according to the caption under the image is "from the reproduction in Qismati az alwah-i-khatt-i-Nuqta-yi Ula," p. 26. Note also a description from Shoghi Effendi, in God Passes By page 69:
It was exclusively to His [Bahá'u'lláh's] care that the documents of the Bab, His pen-case, His seals, and agate rings, together with a scroll on which He had penned, in the form of a pentacle, no less than three hundred and sixty derivatives of the word Bahá’ were delivered, in conformity with instructions He Himself had issued prior to His departure from Chihriq.
