Circle of Life

After much thought I decided to name it the circle of life for the following reasons.

The circle represents life.

Each Walnut segment represents the chapter in life, whether it is a new beginning, a new struggle, or a new endeavor.

The maple between the walnut segments represents the balance, promise and practicality of the chapters of life holding the new beginnings, struggle, and endeavors throughout the circle of life.

The walnut base represents longevity and abundance that holds our circle of life as the walnut trees root go deep to make the tree strong and sturdy.

The Pinnacle represent are achievement and status and our creation
Indeed we are created in God’s own image.

Walnut Tree Symbolizes longevity and abundance.

Maple Tree Symbolizes balance, promise and practicality.

The Pinnacle Symbolizes achievement and status.

The Circle Symbolizes everlasting

It is a real eye catcher! “Insanity” is probably a good name for it. eh?

I’m thinking Stargate or Wormhole, maybe Into the Next Dimension.

“I must of had a moment of insanity when I made this.”

Err…must have.

I’d call it the Amish Stargate.

Wood art projects rock, very nice use of segments and artistic freedom on the rest.

Good luck getting it named.

I must agree with Peter’s reference to the Stargate Portal. Looks similar to me.

I would say it is for putting a ladies wedding ring on for whatever activity she takes it off for be it washing dishes or sleeping. The segmented circle above it frames it nicely.

Or you can be a total dork and put one of these on it.
