I have a hundreds of design which have been created since 2014. Most of them I haven't yet managed to get around to sharing on line.
I am trying to rectify this in 2022, but looking through the archives and posting a few here and there!
| SACRED SHEN |
| Medium Custom Tattoo Design From The Archive |
This design features a Shen Symbol, water, Icosahedron, looping circles, tetrahedron, geometric mandala, flower of life & initials
| SYMBOLISM | In ancient Egypt it was represented in hieroglyphsas a stylised loop of a rope.
The shen ring is most often seen carried by the falcon god Horus.
It was used as a magical aid; during the 3rd and 4th Dynasties it was worn around the neck for protection.
Because the circle had no end, the shen-ring was regarded as the symbol of infinity, and when it encircled the sun, as the symbol of the eternity of the universe.
| TATTOO FLASH |
I created a similar design, which you can now find in my tattoo Tattoo Flash Store
| Symbolism | A Shen ring is a circle with a line at a tangent to it. The word ‘shen' in ancient Egyptian means ‘encircle’ & therefore linked to eternity |
| Symbolism | The Shen ring represents eternal protection |
This design is inspired by the eternal universe, symbolism, mandalas, platonic solids & sacred geometry. The scale of this design is ideal for a forearm.
