Lunar Oak

Ancestral Thread

$70.00

   The spirit of the oak tree in Northern lore is one of loyalty, steadfastness, hardiness, and strength. Sacred oak trees were venerated by the ancient Germanic peoples associating them with Thunor (Thor) whilst pagan Rome linked the oak species with the god/planet Jupiter, the wise teacher.

   In the myths of our Northern Germanic ancestors, the moon is a Jötun god named Mani, who directs the lunar disk across the night skies. Mani is revered as a friend to humans, especially children, and is associated with chronological time keeping. 

The six pointed rosette at the center of this disk is one of the most popular symbols in hexology. Six, being a multiple of three leads to a higher spiritual reality while maintaining a solid balance & stability. Sixfold figures also have the power to create form & substance directly out of purely energetic currents!

13 inch diameter disk crafted from 3/4 inch cabinet grade, yellow birch plywood.

The disks are pretreated with a urethane undercoat and rendered using opaque black gesso. Large "sawtooth" hanger included on reverse face.
