This Talisman was carved amongst nature in blistering sunshine on 8.8.2020 a time that is known as the Lions Gate portal. It is an energetically significant time for a number of reasons, the rising of the star Sirius (which becomes visible in the eastern sky on or around 8/8 each year), its alignment with the powerful summer Sun in Leo, and the numerological symbolism of the number 8. All of these factors carry majorly auspicious symbolism and work together to make Aug. 8 a particularly lucky day for manifesting success and turning your dreams into reality and for carving empowered talismans.
Its sensuous form channelled through without any preconceived ideas and evokes the beauty of indigenous cultures most especially Maori art which has great power and symbolism. It has beautiful naturally occurring striated colouring which finds some connection with the coat of a tiger.
