More

We have had an item donated and it was suggested by Kamizu, to have an auction, to raise some funds for TOTJO...

Any funds raised will go into the TOTJO general fund for the time being, which pays for the site fees, and any upgrades that are done...

Keep your eyes on this thread for more information, as I am working my way through the eBay setup, having never sold anything, only purchased...

I hope to have the items up and listed in by the end of June (that is only 5 days away) and run the auction till July 15th...

As to the "what we are auctioning, a picture (or two) is worth a thousand words, so here is some pictures, and a quick description by Kamizu...

As always, please ask your questions...:)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The large is 6 3/4" or 17cm, the small is 5" or 13cm

These plaques are hand made (except I bought the wood blanks) out of pine wood. The Temple of the Jedi Order's emblem was burned in it. I read out loud each meaning to each part of the symbol before I started on it, and reflected on the meanings as I burned that part into the wood. It was then colored with an ebony stain and then sealed with a semi-gloss finish. Each was signed and dated by the artist on the back (although parts are hard to read because said artist got stain on it.....)

I made these items with the intent of them being a focus or reflection in meditations. They'd go wonderfully on an alter or hung on a wall. I can put wall hangers on them by request (Will add a few days to shipping time)

Being very far away from America, I would like to know potential shipping costs please, because I am aware that I often end up paying more for shipping than the item I bought! :)

Understanding in the place of indifference
Compassion in the place of cruelty
Action in the place of apathy
Peace in the place of violence
Mercy in the place of vengeance

Jestor I regularly use eBay to sell things on. I'm happy to help answer questions or anything you might need.

Thank you Cryo and Kitsu! And also Roz. :D

I forgot to mention in the details that the white part of the emblem was left the natural pine wood color. So you'll see the woodgrain throughout them

Nice work.

The Force is not about what you are wanting to achieve, it is about your ability to listen to the Universe, and answer its call!

I am a Jedi, My continuing goal is the balance of all things in life. It is to treat everyone with kindness and compassion.

I do not believe in social tolerance...I believe in mutual respect!
I don't tolerate you, I respect our differences, our similarities, and your right to whatever I have a right to.
