|The name of this piece has both a literal and a figurative meaning. The general shape is similar to a musical G clef. Look at the right side and imagine the curl resting on the surface of a lake... the inverted curve forming the reflection. |
That, however, is not the real meaning of the carving. This carving is about taking time to reflect on things. In the hurried lifestyle that many of us live, there is little room for stopping and pondering simple things. If life doesn't give you time, you would probably be wise to make the time. Like meditation, simple reflection can be very soothing for the soul.
