Mantra signs indoor/outdoor
These indoor/outdoor mantra signs are homilies on a stick and make a garden, a backyard or any outdoor space a place of meditation and prayer. Each mantra is written in latin because it is the concept that one wants to hold on to, not the words themselves. They are written in eleventh century script so as to move them out of the ordinary. These details will help create a sacred place either tangibly or mentally where one can retreat when needed.
They are painted with a hardy paint and given a clear coat to ensure long life. We keep the words short but the concept rich; Sursum Corda, we lift up our hearts, from the ordinary of the mass, ora et labora, pray and work, from the ancient Benedictine motto that built Europe after the fall of Rome. We will be adding others over time, all of which can be used for meditation in times of trouble, need or joy.
They are more symbol than word and more meaningful than a decoration.
