Coop's wood carved Om comes in various sizes. Our full size wall hanging is based on an 11 inch circle. The miniature carvings vary from a 4.5 inch circle to a 6 inch circle. If you have a specific size between 4.5 to 6 that you want, let us know and we will get as close as possible or make one. If you don't specify, we will send you the prettiest one we have on hand. Our (mini) stock pieces have an eye screw and string attached. If you would prefer it without let us know and we will make one without the eye screw.
Meaning: The sanskrit symbol of the sound of the Universe at total Peace…
Om (also spelled Aum) is a Hindu sacred sound that is considered the greatest of all mantras.
The syllable Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u combine to become o) and the symbol's threefold nature is central to its meaning. It represent several important triads:
The three worlds - earth, atmosphere, and heaven
The three major Hindu gods - Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva
The three sacred Vedic scriptures - Rg, Yajur, and Sama
Thus Om mystically embodies the essence of the entire universe. This meaning is further deepened by the Indian philosophical belief that God first created sound and the universe arose from it. As the most sacred sound, Om is the root of the universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together.
This Eastern Mysticism themed wood carving would be appropriate for a meditation room or yoga studio. As Buddhist wall art, it is a beautiful gift for the yoga practitioner, teacher or meditator in your life!
