Galactic Butterfly (Hunab Ku) Clay Paper Weight
Handmade of clay (3 3/4 inches in diameter x 3/4 inch thick).
The Galactic Butterfly paperweights have four small cork circles on the bottom of the coaster to protect the table top surface. The coasters are non-absorbent with a clear gloss finish to protect the hand painted design.
The Galactic Butterfly, also called the Hunab Ku is an ancient symbol that is said to represent the Supreme God or the One Being, with ‘Hunab’ meaning ‘one state of being’ and ‘Ku’ meaning ‘God.’ It encompasses all opposites in the universe and unites them as one: male and female, dark and light, yin, and yang, conscious and unconscious, internal and external—the list goes on. Some believe that the Hunab Ku acts as a bridge to connect these opposites. Click here to read what Ian Xel Lungold wrote about the Galactic Butterfly (Hunab Ku).
