A powerful standing vessel piece created from the beautiful and strong sheath from a giant Royal Palm tree. This vessel is 17" high and has an isosceles triangular wood base (4" x 4" x 5"). The natural colored golden sheath with dark brown markings was the inspiration for this piece. The large natural citrine chunk has been inset into the palm vessel, encircled with braided waxed linen, with more citrine nuggets. The vessel has silk stitching and trim, and the bottom trim is handmade paper. The entire piece has been completed with an encaustic wax finish.
(about citrine, paraphrased from The Book of Stones by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian) - Spiritual properties suggest this powerful stone marries the energy of the mind with that of the will. It helps one perceive issues of power use, boundaries and manifestation. It stimulates the mind and assists in learning. Emotionally, it lightens dark thoughts and brings optimism and happiness into one's energy system. Physically it can assist digestive issues and metabolism. Suggested affirmation - I open myself to the inspiration of my creative imagination, and throught the strength of my will, aligned with Source, I manifest my dreams.
