MEANING: We’ve invited the Ancient Goddess of the Celts to join the Peace Movement! Coop has carved a peace symbol in the center full moon. For Hippie type Wiccans or Pagans who would like to focus their energy on Peace, whether it be world peace or inner peace...
The Phases of the Moon represent the three aspects of the Goddess and the phases of the Life of Women: Waxing for The Maiden; Full for The Mother; Waning for The Crone.
What is peace symbol origin? The symbol of peace is formed from the semaphore for "N" and "D" for Nuclear Disarmament. In the 1950's the anti-nuclear movement saw the silhouette of a B-52 bomber in the symbol. Later taken up by the Anti-war activists during the Viet Nam era peace movement, and recently re-invoked: Peace!
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.
