"Sri Yantra" - Wall - Garden Art
Ceramics, Lampwork Glass, Copper & Driftwood
One of my newest creations. A beautiful art instillation for your home or garden for some
awesome energy in your sacred space! Great for meditation too!
(See link below for an amazing Sri Yantra meditation).
A beautiful Sri Yantra sacred symbol hand made by me in ceramics along with lampwork glass
beads, also handmade by me.
I etched the lampwork beads for a soft sea-glass look which looks just beachy next to the
driftwood that I collected here on the beautiful Oregon coast!
Both glass and ceramic have been properly kiln annealed.
The entire length of the piece is about 12 and 1/2 inches long. The driftwood measures about
12 and 3/4 inches in length. Wire working is all hand done by me in copper. Hanging loop has
some Sari silk and hand spun yarn wrapped around it. The Sri Yantra symbol measures about
6 and 3/4 inches in tall and wide
This symbol is composed of nine interlocking triangles that radiate outwards from the center or
bind point. This central point is considered the meeting place or junction between the physical
world and the spiritual world. Of the nine triangles, four points to the sky and is believed to be
symbols for Shiva (the masculine), while the five pointing downwards represent Shakti (or the
feminine). Because of this, the Sri Yantra is believed to be a strong symbol for the union of the
masculine and the feminine divine.
The nine main triangles also form 43 smaller triangles, which is said to represent the entire
universe or cosmos. Eight lotus petals surround the triangles, while a larger ring of 16 lotus petals
surround both. This is finally enclosed in a temple-like square, which contains four doors.
The word ‘yantra’ means ‘instrument’ and this is exactly what this symbol is, an instrument or
powerful tool for intense meditation, prayer or concentration to allow one to achieve a higher level
of consciousness. The Sri Yantra acts as a focusing point, with an inner and outer doorway that
can lead one to commune with different force centers in the universe.
