MEANING: The Man in the Moon is an imaginary figure resembling a human face, head or body, that observers from some cultural backgrounds typically perceive in the bright disc of the full moon. The figure is composed of the dark areas (the lunar maria, or “seas”) and lighter highlands of the lunar surface.
And here is the inspiring sweet little lullaby/poem/ditty: I see the moon The moon sees me Under the shade of the old oak tree Please let the light that shines on me Shine on the one I love. Over the mountains Over the sea Back where my heart is longing to be Please let the light that shines on me Shine on the one I love.
This is a dreamy wallhanging for in a baby’s room, (think baby shower gift!), child’s room, or for your favorite moon gazer who loves to sit and imagine under the full moon.
THE CARVING: This is one of Coop’s designs that each piece is truly distinctive from one another, you never know exactly how the grain lines will move, so remember these are stock pictures! 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.
