Double Tree of Life
Celebrate your family with one of our Tree of Life carvings ~ the roots represent your ancestors, you and your living relatives are the trunk and the branches are future generations to come.
The Tree of Life crosses all cultures because the Ancients could see trees close up all of the time… the symbolism of the sprouting seed, growing into a trunk and branching off, sending out smaller branches and little twigs, to see what they may accomplish… was not lost on them. The Tree became a common symbol, then, of life, ancestry, mythology, lessons of the spirit, history, lineage, and hope for the future.
Sometime known as the “Tree of Knowledge” or “Sacred Tree”, the Tree of Life is seen as a connection between the heavens and the underworld. It is part of Celtic and Viking traditions. In Viking lore it is called “Yggdrasill” – the tree that connects the three worlds: Asgard-the realm of the gods, Midgard-the world of man, and Hel and Niflheim-the kingdom of the frost giant.
Dimensions: 16 x 15 x .5
Please note: This piece is for hanging inside. Mahogany that is left to the elements will not fair well. Beautifully crafted one at a time, each wood carving starts from an original hand drawing. Every step of the carving and painting process is done by hand with great attention to detail and as a finishing touch a French paste wax is buffed into the finish until a rich luster is obtained.
