Runic Balance

Using the ancient and mysterious Runes (found carved in stone in Sweden, likely from the first century B.C.E.), this 'balance' uses a counter-weight to measure the 'runic weight' of an idea. The lead crystal ball has the runes painted around the middle facets and the cast stone base has them carved into its surface. This sculpture can be used as a centering device when casting the Runes for insight and inspiration.

Cast stone, steel, brass, lead crystal and internal electric lighting. Approx. 40 inches (1 metre) tall.
