Our Tree of Life Solid Wood Door is an example of how we bring your vision into reality. Starting with a concept provided by one of our clients, our designers, carvers, and woodworkers created an amazing piece of art rich in history and mythological significance.
Your Hand Carved Custom Wooden Door Is a Work of Art
Versions of the Tree of Life have been found in various cultures throughout recorded history, including Egyptian, Armenian, Chinese, Indian, Native American, Mayan, and many more. For Ancient Egypt, the tree represented the chain of events that brought life into existence, and it demonstrated the order and process of all creation. To the Chinese, it was a symbol of immortality. A Taoist story tells of a special tree that grows one peach every three thousand years. Anyone lucky enough to eat one of the peaches will gain eternal life. Trees are so ingrained in mythology because they serve as strong symbols for death, growth, and rebirth.
The Tree of Life also carries scientific as well as religious significance. In the book, “On the Origin of Species,” Charles Darwin used a tree as a metaphor for the interconnecting relationships of organisms throughout evolution. Other metaphors about trees represent spiritual concepts. For example, Buddhist stories of Siddhartha Gautama say he achieved enlightenment while sitting under a Bodhi tree (Body Tree), and some Biblical stories involve a tree of knowledge that man is forbidden to touch.
Fall In Love With Your Custom Wooden Door Every Time You See It
With the Tree of Life as the foundation, our designers added elements to this Solid Wood Door that captured our client’s individual taste and personality. The trunk of the tree features celtic knots to show the interconnectedness and continuity of life. Each section of the tree branches captures a different season – winter (on the left), autumn (maple leaves), spring (poplar leaves), and summer (oak leaves, on the right). An owl is perched on a winter branch and butterflies rest among the summer blooms. A white dove offers an olive branch for peace, and the world is depicted in the hanging apple. As the tree represents the birth and growth of life and the changing of the year, the sun and moon represent the changing nature of each day.
