Hair Comb Dat Rosa Mel Apibus by pagan-art Hair Comb Dat Rosa Mel Apibus by pagan-art
Wooden comb is carved from beech wood and is finished in Danish oil and natural linseed oil.

Length: 110 mm
Thickness: 13 mm

DAT ROSA MEL APIBUS "The Rose Gives The Bees Honey" (look at the last photo) is the original motto found in the engraving (possibly) by Johann Thedore deBry (d. 1598).

The motto may be interpreted as saying that "spiritual knowledge gives solace to souls," of whom bees are a venerable symbol.

This image of the Rosa Mundi, or Rota Mundi, is the solar wheel of Apollo, the Lord of movement, of the ever passing/present moment. It is the Solar Citadel, the abode of the Heart, the symbolic center of the Supreme Center which is everywhere centered at once. It is a door through which this invisible place may be accessed by one with a pure heart and an unblemished soul.

I'll say it again man. I'm not sure whether to comb my hair with it or bite it, as it looks like a delicious rose cookie! But what I like most about this one are the thorns crowing it. Simply amazing work!

Such a wonderful carving, and the presentation is just as exquisite!  How long does it take to make such a beauty?

Thank you. I like photography as much as woodcarving. It takes several days, but I always work on several projects.
