The oak tree has been important to the ancients through out human history.
Much lore may be found associated with the tree
in both North America and Western Europe.
Many Native American Nations viewed the oak tree
as a symbol of strength and supernatural power.
In Europe it was revered by the Celts:
the oak groves are considered sacred
and spell weaving in a grove assured success.
It is also possible to commune
with the fairy realm through the trees.
Native Americans associated it with the sky god,
Nordics considered it a tree of Thor,
and the Greeks attributed the tree to Zeus.
Magick properties of the oak include
longevity, stamina, prosperity, liberation,
and the Will.
Among other cultures,
the Nordic legends attribute the Oak Tree
to protection, strength,
and as the gateway to other Worlds.
In celebration of the tree,
I have created the Oak Tree Belt Buckle
featuring the image of an Oak Tree
suspended in space,
rooted in rock
surrounded by a field of stars.
The “shield” shape
is that of a Door into the world of Fae
representing the idea
how one may enter the world of the Mysteries
through the qualities of the Oak.
Rooted in the stone,
the tree is both contained and suspended in space.
Flanked on either side of the tree
and the old Druid’s Ogham Rune attributed to the Oak.
The suspension of the tree
represents the suspension of thought
required to enter the door.
The Oak Tree Belt Buckle
is for those who love the Oak
and wish to strengthen the qualities
of the tree within themselves.
