This is a listing for a glass fused plate measuring approx. 5"x10" with dichroic strips and three shades of purple and ivory glass with an image of a whale tail. The whale decal is tribal in style and fired mostly dark brown with some sepia tones.
No image fires exactly the same, so each piece is unique!
Glass is COE90 and is fused in a sushi plate with sloped edges.
Wash with dish soap and water (recommended). Great wedding or housewarming gift.
The meaning behind the symbol: Whale
The whale, in many cultures, is seen as a symbol of good luck, speed, strength, freedom and joy within. Whales were considered sacred in Russian, Slavic, Arabian and Chinese mythology. In Native American cultures, the Tlingit, Nootka and Haida tribes see whales as a symbol of strength and speed. Whales have always been an important religious symbol, and in fact, statues of Buddha in Tibet are often accompanied by whale figures.
