Rosette mandala wall clock
Around the face of this wall clock, layers of delicate laser cut wood build upon each other to build a glorious design known as a Rosette in the form of a mandala.
In art and architecture, a rosette is a round, stylized flower design, derived from the shape of a botanical rosette. In botany, a rosette is a circular arrangement of leaves that remain clustered tightly together. for example, the White Dryad, an 8-petal flower found largely in cold climates, is a well-known form of a rosette.
The face of this clock is built parallel to a wooden 8-petal flower. The small flower works as an artistic focal point and spreads across the piece into a more intricate and detailed design.
The 8-petal flower is a symbol seen in ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Persian artifacts. Carved into wood and stone, they were used as ornaments for decoration.
In history, rosettes are often found to be a symbol of the sun. A metaphor for the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth as it is seen in nature. Indicating moving from one state of existence to the other. This might explain a carved ivory disk bearing the 8-petal symbol being found at was is presumed to be the site of a child’s burial. The artifact was found in modern-day Russia and dates back to the upper Paleolithic period.
Use this wooden wall clock to bring a subtle touch of history, culture, and floral beauty to your room.
