Ref.PD0687 - Silver pendant with brass Solar Mandala, aka Seed of Life, geometry, mother of pearl carved wings, and zircon gem.
Wings have many meanings for many people - most of the meaning is derived from religious or cultural ideas (angels, transcendence, freedom from the world, etc.). When we use them, it is with the intent to inspire an overview. Like the eagle or the hawk, who fly high above the earth is not there to escape it but to have a broader view. With an overview of the reality, we may better navigate the terrain upon which we are grounded.
The wings are the elevators that catch the thermals of higher thought that give us a vantage of the overview – seeing from there we see the interconnection of all things – understanding brings forgiveness.
