MEANING: This Shy Pentacle is an example of a HIDDEN PENTACLE. They are pentacles disguised for when it is not safe or appropriate to display a 'standard' pentacle. Many such stylized designs can be recognized by other believers, but are less apparent to outsiders. A Pentacle protects, weaving all the elements; Spirit, Earth, Air, Water and Fire; into five spiked wards and a womb shaped defensive, protective pentagon at the center. Are there torch bearers in your neighborhood? This might be the symbol for you! 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: The last 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. Please contact if we don't have your country listed for shipping outside of the U.S. International orders will be sent Parcel Post.
