Product description: The symbol “Om”, also spelled as "AUM" is said to be the primordial sound of creation as per Hindu texts, and a spiritual icon in religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. It is considered a powerful mantra often used in meditation and spiritual practices, and the repetition of Om is believed to bring a sense of peace, unity, and connection with the divine. The wood carving represents the symbol in a sun frame with the sanskrit letters seamlessly connected, namely the three curves, one semi circle, a dot or bindu at the top, forming a visual representation of the primordial sound. The following are the four components of AUM:
A - The waking state (Jagat), symbolizing the outward consciousness and the material world.
U - The dream state (Swapna) symbolizing the inner consciousness - inner thoughts and dreams.
M - The deep sleep state (Sushupti) symbolizing the state of the unconsciousness and the absence of thoughts.
Dot - The state of absolute consciousness (Turiya), signifies the ultimate reality, pure consciousness, or the divine. This state transcends beyond the other three states of waking, dream, and deep sleep.
The wood panel is certainly a beautiful divine carving of OM, and the depth of carving creates s sense of dimension, and interests the viewers to appreciate the details from various angles. The natural warmth and the beauty of the wood compliments the spiritual symbol, and keen attention to detail is given to capture the essence of this sacred sound. The overall effect of this wood carving of AUM is one of serenity and transcendence. Whether displayed in a sacred space or admired in a secular setting, this exquisite wood carving stands as a testament to the enduring power of art to elevate the human spirit.
