MEANING: Musical notation began around 900 AD, when songs became too difficult to memorize. At that time, songs were written in keys, or clefs, of C and F and later G. F Clef became our Base Clef; C Clef is our modern C Clef and the G Clef is now known as the Treble Clef. This is a miniature version of Coop’s wood carved Treble Clef. There are pictures with both sizes shown so you can see the difference...this listing is for the wee one! A great gift for a music lover or musician! 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: 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.
