This wood carving consists of the Crescent Waxing, Full Center, and Crescent Waning Moons linked together.  The center Full Moon contains the Faery Star.

MEANING: The Celtic Triple Moon incorporates the phases of the Moon (Waxing, Full, and Waning) to represent the three aspects of the Goddess and the phases of the Life of Women: Maiden, Mother and Crone.

The Seven-Pointed Faery Star is an emerging symbol in contemporary magick. Also known as a Fairy Star or Elven Star, it is most often used to represent the worlds of Faery. It can be displayed as a protective shield, a focal point for meditation, or a symbol of the Shining Realms.

The septagram, or Faerie Star, is used by many Faerie and Celtic-based traditions. The seven points can represent the Sun, the Forest (or Wood), the Sea, Magic, the Moon, the Wind, and Connection (or Spirit).

Fae practitioners may use the Faery Star instead of, or in addition to, the five-pointed pentagram. The Faery Star expands our awareness of directionality from five to seven (North, South, East, West, Above, Below, and Within). Because "Below" and "Within" are generally hidden from sight, they hint at the unseen Realms of Faerie. Curiously enough, the land of Faerie is usually said to exist either in the imagination (within) or in a hidden place, perhaps in the Underworld (below).

SIZE: Approximately 13 inches wide by 5.5 inches high.

THE CARVING: Our carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings.  Each carving begins as a 1 X 12-inch cedar board.  While we use power tools (Scroll Saw, Rotary shaft Tool, handheld detail sanders, etc.), we use no lasers, CNC machines or computer-operated cutting machines.  All work is done with our hands and eyes…

We cut the 2-dimensional blanks with scroll and jig saws (double-sized custom orders have to be cut with a jigsaw). Carving is done with rotary shaft tools and disc grinders. The 80-grit sanding is the final phase of the carving process, removing the nicks and gouges from the carving tools, and finishes the shaping of the weave. The next 2 sandings with 120 and then 220 grit finishes the smoothing and polishing. They are finished with Clear Danish Oil to seal the piece, bringing out the grain and the color.
