The Pathfinder came to me in a meditation full blown from a request I made for myself. It has shown a strong interest in being shared.
The three arrows form a ‘hex rune’, a symbol that shows the Six Ways- North, South, East, West, Above and Below- another form of the classic World Tree or Crossroads. The waxing and waning moons show the nature of the cycle of all life on Earth, from absence, birth, growth, decline to death/absence/transmutation and back again. The Star is the Pole, True North, guidance and succor, as well as the call of the Ancestors (who are both the Stars Above and the Stars Below). The arrows show optionality- the ways of increase, decrease, and the narrow road between.
1.75″ x .79" x .093" thick (44mm x 20mm x 2.3mm thick), weight is right around 12 grams.
Entirely handcrafted from sheets of Sterling Silver by Aidan Wachter. Each item is built one at a time for each customer, thus shipping time will vary depending on how many orders are already in the shop queue at the time you order. Please see either the announcement bar at the top of site pages (unless you have hidden it!) or the first item on the FAQ for a current estimate of time to ship. Would you prefer your piece to be made from fine silver? Smaller or larger? Heavier or lighter? Customized in some other way? Please contact me for a quote.
