In Hinduism, Om (also spelled Aum) is a Hindu sacred sound that is considered the greatest of all mantras. The syllable Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u combine to become o) and the symbol's threefold nature is central to its meaning. It represent several important triads:
- The three worlds - earth, atmosphere, and heaven
- The three major Hindu gods - Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva
- The three sacred Vedic scriptures - Rg, Yajur, and Sama
Thus Om mystically embodies the essence of the entire universe. This meaning is further deepened by the Indian philosophical belief that God first created sound and the universe arose from it. As the most sacred sound, Om is the root of the universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together.
LaserTrees makes quality, hand-finished wooden art and jewelry, that we like to call 'wearable art!' We specialize in making wood look beautiful and then combining our art, rooted mostly in sacred geometry, with our skills in taming the beast that is our laser machine. We take care to prepare and finish each piece of wood to a natural finish (no stain!) using natural, food grade mineral oil and vitamin E and a water based sealant. This finishing process brings out the beauty of the natural color and grain of the wood without using stain! We then use that wood as our canvas for almost anything we can think of. We have pioneered laser cutting techniques that allow us to cut and engrave almost anything made out of a flat piece of wood. We are proud of our ability to make every product to the highest quality that we can and guarantee you will love them!
We ship all orders from Southern California, where they are produced. At LaserTrees, we create items as they are ordered, so please allow us a one-week lead time to create and ship your order.
