It’s important to design your living environment to feel comfortable and soothing for yourself. An environment where you don’t feel at home can be very frustrating. Feng Shui is all about total harmony between you and your environment. A good feng shui or total harmony creates relaxation and ensures that you can live pleasantly. You do this by, among other things, providing natural materials and pleasant light. For example, you can place wooden statues in places where you have no room for plants or where little sunlight comes in so that you still benefit from some soothing natural energy. This way you still ensure sufficient relaxation at home.
Fairtrade stands for exactly that: fair trade. This means that producers in developing countries receive a fair price for their products. The working conditions are also humane. This means that no child labor is involved, they do not work extremely long working days and that attention is paid to as many environmentally friendly production processes as possible. The work area is also very clean. The producer considers it important to work as transparently as possible. During production, every effort is made to use as few chemicals or other toxic substances as possible. In this way they try to contribute to the well-being of the environment.
At Spiru you will also find the head of Buddha made of wood. Buddha Figurines symbolize Buddhist teachings and all refer to important Buddhist concepts such as compassion, detachment, and rebirth. These concepts are eternal truths for the Buddhists to which they can always rely. Buddha statues represent happiness and peace. The images can also have a special appearance for other people. Many people think that you cannot buy such an image for yourself. Although it is a beautiful gift to someone else, it is a myth that you should not buy one for yourself. What matters is that you do this with the right intention.
The Yogiman has its origins in Asian countries such as Indonesia and India. This figurine is also called Orang Malu, which literally means ‘modest person’ or ‘shy person’. It depicts an introverted, meditating man. In some countries this statue is called the “Weeping Buddha”: Buddha weeping for the sorrow of the world. The story of the Yogi man is that he was so ashamed of humanity that he chose a life of meditation in the posture in which he is still known. It is also said that he cries for the sorrow of the earth, yet deep in his heart he can be happy. He has found peace and happiness within himself.
When you turn the front of this wooden statue towards you and look at it, you can see his smiling face: the hands are teeth, the head is his nose and the ears are the eyes. At the back of Yogiman you see the shape of a heart, which symbolizes life, energy and strength. On the side you see the shape of a fetus. This represents purity and new beginnings. The Yogiman also symbolizes the life cycle: there is no beginning and no end. It is also said about this statue that it keeps all evil at bay when its back is turned to the door. According to various legends, worries disappear and self-confidence is increased by regularly patting the back and treating the Yogiman well.
At Spiru there are different types of wooden animal figurines and statues for sale. You can choose from different wooden animals, such as:
The cat symbolizes adventure, mystery, independence and curiosity. When a cat is your totem animal or spirit animal, you may be encouraged to strike a balance between togetherness and independence. An image of a Wooden Cat could help you with this.
A Wooden Elephant represents more than you think. The general meaning of the elephant is faithfulness, patience, wisdom, strength and good memory. In Hinduism, this animal is the symbol of sacred wisdom, royal dignity, wisdom and power. It would also represent immortality and the victory over death. It is not without reason that the cheerful god of wisdom from Hinduism is associated with the elephant: Ganesha even has an elephant head! The whole world is also carried by elephants according to Hindu belief. In Buddhism, the elephant is sacred because a white elephant is said to have announced the birth of Buddha. They also symbolize patience, goodness and love. Furthermore, this animal symbolizes the detachment of the boddhisattva.
The owl symbolizes clairvoyance, wisdom, and is also called the night eagle in some cultures. Not only does it have excellent night vision, the owl is also said to have exceptionally good hearing. This bird of prey would also be one of the few animals that could perceive the invisible. You can think of the deeper meaning of things and discovering hidden treasures in life. Owls fly silently through the dark, and into your life, where it could help you face certain challenges. The Wooden Owl would be a good purchase if this is your totem animal. He is adventurous, optimistic, and has a warm personality.
The wooden figurines are also suitable for placing in the nursery. Especially the wooden figurines with a lighter type of wood radiate tranquility, which is of course very important for young children. The painted wooden animals are a fun, playful addition to the nursery.
In contrast to, for example, stone, and polyester statues, Spiru’s wooden statues are especially suitable for indoor use. If you do want to place them outside, do so in a protected environment such as in a gazebo.
