MEANING: Coop’s carving of the pre-christian Celtic Wheel Cross symbolizes the four elements; air, fire, water and earth, the Triskelion in the center stands for the aspects of the Threefold Goddess; Maiden, Mother, Crone.

The wood burning of the horned moon, antlers and oak represent the Lord of the Forest, Green Man, Cernunnos, the primal, active force within all things, consort of the Goddess, balancing symbol of male energy in the divine. The band between the Horned God and the Maiden Goddess has Oak in Bloom while the band between the Crone and the Horned God has the fully developed acorn.

The 3 phases of the moon are held by Goddess figures. The figures represent the phase of the Goddess as the Maiden is slender with high breast, Mother is fuller hipped and breasted, Crone is wider and lower breasted, reflecting and celebrating the changes of our bodies throughout our lives.

The entwining Moonflower in it’s different states (blooming, flowering, and seedpods) flow between the bands reflect the phases of the Maiden, Mother, Crone.

Please note, this is a picture of a stock item that will be custom made for you and may take up to three weeks to produce. The wood burning will be slightly different from piece to piece, but it will contain the major themes mentioned above. If you wish to see exactly what you are getting, please look at other wood burnings that have OOAK (Original One of A Kind) in the item name.

The back of each arm is keyholed so you have the option of hanging it with any sign dominant.

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. 

The pictures you see here are stock photos. What you get will depend on what we have in stock. If there are no others in stock, the time to shipping will be increased. If you desire and request something (for example) dark, we will pull the darkest board we have, but it will not necessarily be as dark as (for example) walnut would be. Western Red Cedar is the species from which roofing shingles, decks, and gazeboes have traditionally been made. It is resistant to mold, moisture, and insects. The oiling process also helps to block out damaging UV rays of the sun, so our carvings can be hung outdoors. Please be aware, that even with the oiling, the carving will eventually gray out, as any cedar will, if it is placed in direct sunlight.

 SIZE OF THE CARVINGS: The stock carvings are limited by the size of the board that starts the carving process. As the initial piece is 1 in. x 12 in., (in reality 3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in.) one side of the carving will be no greater then approximately 11-1/2 in.
