Black Obsidian Skull Carving~CROSKULL
Matte finish Black Obsidian Skull Carving with stand~CROSKULL. Instead of representing death or loss, Skulls represents the important Buddhist concept of emptiness. In Buddhism, emptiness is considered to be a quality of the universe. This means that phenomena we experience has no inherent nature by itself; instead, we attach meaning to what we experience. It’s basically saying all events are neutral- but we choose to magnify them in our minds. They can also symbolize humility, reminding us that everything outside the skull is vanity. They can also represent humanity, unity, and diversity, because other than subtle differences and size, they are pretty much identical regardless, of age, sex, or race. Obsidian (volcanic glass) is said to act to cleanse the energetic field or aura of disharmonious energy, densities, and negative attachments. It is thought to be very grounding and protective and also assist one in choosing behaviors that are only for one's highest good. Obsidian has also been used for scrying, or crystal gazing. With stand 125mm x 61mm x 61mm.
