Ahunga - direction of movement


Ahunga - direction of movement


I really like this design. It is named Ahunga. This word is very apt as it means direction (of movement), bearing, and orientation. It also means source, origin, and dimension (of space). 

This simple design is symbolic of this movement of our lives through the universe.

All is not what it seems. An example of this is that if we are sitting still meditating or pondering the meaning of life, we think we are completely still according to our senses and experience. Yet in reality, we are moving very fast on the surface of the spinning earth, which itself is hurtling through space around the sun. This sun is moving even faster and around the centre of our galaxy, which is also spinning and moving through an expanding space....

The carving comes with a four-plait cord which features a fully adjustable slip knot system to enable to a perfect fit around any size neck. It also comes with an officially signed certificate of authenticity and has been registered in my database of work.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the carving and over time come to fully understand all the various layers of meaning imbued in this creation. I wish you and your family the deepest peace and happiness.
