MEANING: A Pentacle is an encircled pentagram. It contains and protects. The circle symbolizes the eternal cyclic nature of life. As it touches each point, it demonstrates the connectedness of all the elements; Spirit, Earth, Air, Water and Fire. A symbol of the holistic relationship between Human Spirituality and the Physical Universe.
SIZE: The full size carving is within an 11 inch diameter circle. The Miniatures can vary between 4 and 1/2 inches to 6 inches. If you have a specific size between these two measurements, please add a note during checkout and we will make one specifically to your size.
Our carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings. Each carving begins as a 1 X 12 inch cedar board. While we use power tools (Scroll Saw, Rotary shaft Tool, handheld detail sanders etc.), we use no laser’s, CNC machines or computer operated cutting machines. All work is done with our hands and eyes…
We cut the 2 dimensional blanks with scroll and jig saws (double-sized custom orders have to be cut with jigsaw). Carving is done with rotary shaft tools and disc grinders. The 80 grit sanding is the final phase of the carving process, removing the nicks and gouges from the carving tools, and finishes the shaping of the weave. The next 2 sandings with 120 then 220 grit finishes the smoothing and polishing. They are finished with Clear Danish Oil to seal the piece, bringing out the grain and the color.
