Druid Tree-Pentacle Tree-World Tree-Nature Based Altar Celtic Carving

Details

MEANING:
The Elements of the Pentacle; Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit, are woven within the branches of this mighty Druid Tree. An outer band connects and weaves the energies into a harmonious whole of light, embracing the Eternal Cyclic nature of Life.

The Tree is a common universal, archetypal symbol that can be found in many different traditions around the ancient world. The lore reaches back into humankind’s earliest symbology. They offer physical and spiritual nourishment, represent a patient period of rest in seed/nut form; a breaking through, lifting up, transformation as sapling; solid stability and endurance through the storms of life; a balance of the feminine, nurturing, yin (fruit, shade and protection) with the masculine active yang (the erect trunk a phallic symbol straining toward the sky).

Trees are a magical, mystical presence supplying a stong, deep-rooted patience, essential to a wiccan/pagan/shamanic path. Some of the traditions where Sacred Trees are found are: Shamanic, Hindu, Egyptian, Sumerian, Toltec, Mayan, Norse, Celtic and Christian traditions.

The World-tree is described in The Upanishads as “a tree eternally existing, its roots aloft, its branches spreading below.”

The Ogham script is a writing system based on trees. It consists of twenty-five simple strokes centered on or branching off a central line. Also known as the "Celtic Tree Alphabet”, each stroke of the Ogham corresponds to a letter of the alphabet, which is in turn associated with a tree. Each tree has deep meaning. Often carved onto pieces of wood, known as wands, can be used for divination purposes. It is a powerful language of symbolism.

A wonderful piece to enhance a nature-based spiritual practice.

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. Follow the green lines (found at the top and right side of the carving) Subtract 1 inch from the height and width for the stock size. Measurements may vary slightly from piece to piece.

*The quilting board, at its simplest, is a board that has 1 inch marks going up the sides and across the top and bottom. There are lines connecting top and bottom, left to right. So it is a one inch grid. (Took me a bit to get to that right word...grid...as Coop says, "I'm not senile, I just have an old processor and sometimes it takes awhile to find the information, but it will come!") So with the piece on the board, you look at the top and follow the line to the left and look at the right side at the widest point and follow the line to the bottom and you have height by width...but wait! It's not that easy! The way this board I have is laid out, if I lined it up on the zero points it would cover up the numbers and on some pieces you wouldn't be able to see them...so, I line it up on the 1 inch marks which means when you get the numbers, you have to subtract 1 inch... TA DA!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Coop's very good friend Sallie, who identifies herself as a Druid, has been asking him to carve her this tree for years. We see her every year during the Maryland Renaissance Festival. One year she was ill to the point Coop was afraid she might not make it. Happily she recovered, but he wanted to make sure he did this carving for her (finally). He carved an extra and they have been so well received at our shows that Sallie's Druid Tree is now a stock item...Thanks Sallie!
