MEANING: The Compass Rose of a map shows the four directions, highlighted so that sailors could read it under the stars. Here, eternity knots forming a Compass Rose evoke the cycle of Exploration and Returning Home. We also have the Compass Rose in variation. See https://www.etsy.com/listing/74836774/wood-burned-compass-rose-celtic-knot-of for the wood burned variation or https://www.etsy.com/listing/85171871/miniature-compass-rose-celtic-knot-of?ga_search_query=compass%2Brose for the Miniature version. 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.
