Tree of Life carving by Moriquendi88 Tree of Life carving by Moriquendi88
Tree of Life

To me it's a symbol of balance and nature.


I've carved it into a small table we have. The tree has a diameter of 19 centimeter. It took many hours to make.

On the sides of the table, I've also carved in the word "natur" (nature in Norwegian) in ogham (left side: [link] ) and in runes (right side: [link] ).

The picture is taken by my beloved one: :iconlaureahenondo:

The way you carry on old traditions in my favorite manner of expression( celtic knot) has earned my respect and admiration

Indeed this is the symbol of the balance of nature and the energy of the universe. It is also well explained in a documentary called thrivemovement, if you ask me.

Hi there, this a true work of craftsmenship, i was looking to use this very same symbol for a comemerative bench, can you give me any tips on a stencil, or is it a case of free hand?

I actually printed it on regular print paper and made some cuts through it with one of these [link] Then freehand.

Using something else will probably be easier, but it was the only thing available at the moment.
