MEANING: Egyptian hieroglyphic of Eternal Life, also known as the Ancient Septre of the Pharaoh, key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata. This symbol combines the “tau” or t-shaped cross which stands for “life” and male energy, with the loop or circle which stands for “eternity” and female energy. THE CARVING: My Carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings. Each piece is finished with a blend of clear oils that brings out the natural color of the wood. For more information on the process of creation, please see my profile. SIZE: The last picture has the piece on a quilting board, lined up on the 1 inch marks. So subtract 1 inch from the height and width for the stock size. Measurements may vary slightly from piece to piece. Please Convo for Shipping outside of the U.S.
