MEANING: The Compass Rose of a map shows the four directions, highlighted so that sailors could read it under the stars. Circles often represent completion. Eternity knots forming a Compass Rose with the circle woven thru, evoke the cycle of Exploration and Returning Home. On this piece, Katrina wood burns the circle woven through the Eternity Knot. Every here and there you may find a Heart...for what is a Journey without an open heart to lead you? Please note, this is a picture of a stock item that may have to be custom made for you and may take up to two weeks to produce. The wood burning will be slightly different from piece to piece, but it will contain the major themes mentioned above. If you wish to see exactly what you are getting, please look at other wood burnings that have OOAK (Original One of A Kind) in the item name. 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.
