MEANING: The bodies remain separate, representing the importance of maintaining our individuality within the relationship, yet the tails intertwine in a heart of love, as our lives join in a journey of love. We fondly call this our “Anti-CoDependency Knot”.  

This will appeal to Cat Lovers as well as couples building a strong stable relationship. 

This is a mini version of Coop's wood carved Cat Love Knot. It measures approximately 9 inches tall by 6 inches wide. There are pictures with both sizes shown so you can see the difference...this listing is for the wee one!

AND... A BIT OF STORY BEHIND THIS DESIGN:

From Katrina: When I started working with Coop, I started drawing up what became our Cat Love Knot. It was inspired by a small, cast iron statue at his veterinarian's office. As I was working on the knot, trying to get the shape to look like two cats, to weave the tails, to link their bodies, the meaning (underline, italic and spooky woo-woo music) came to me. In that meditative state the designing took me to, the conversations Coop and I had been having (our relationship was new and we were doing a lot of talking about our past and our exes.) all of a sudden clicked into one whole. The bodies remain separate, representing the importance of maintaining our individuality within the relationship, yet the tails intertwine in a heart of love...Coop laughed and said it was Anti-CoDependency! And our first collaborative knot was born!

THE WOOD 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: One 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. 

The pictures you see here are stock photos. What you get will depend on what we have in stock. If there are no others in stock, the time to shipping will be increased. If you desire and request something (for example) dark, we will pull the darkest board we have, but it will not necessarily be as dark as (for example) walnut would be. Western Red Cedar is the species from which roofing shingles, decks, and gazeboes have traditionally been made. It is resistant to mold, moisture, and insects. The oiling process also helps to block out damaging UV rays of the sun, so our carvings can be hung outdoors. Please be aware, that even with the oiling, the carving will eventually gray out, as any cedar will, if it is placed in direct sunlight.

 SIZE OF THE CARVINGS: The stock carvings are limited by the size of the board that starts the carving process. As the initial piece is 1 in. x 12 in., (in reality 3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in.) one side of the carving will be no greater then approximately 11-1/2 in.
