David's Newborn Son and 15% Coupon
for the Holidays
About two weeks ago my third son arrived .A young brother to my beloved
daughters Shoshan and Nuphar; and though we happened to
“follow” the long forgotten Hobbit tradition of
giving our daughters names of flowers (Shoshan
is Hebrew for Lily and
Nuphar is a Water Lily), we named our son Yair (pronounced Ya-EE-r),
which means will bring light.
For this occasion and I’ve decided to create a
special version of my “Journey of Life” pendant, as
an antique style brass key-chain. It will be sent as a free gift for
orders above $400 but also be available in special price for orders
But before that

antique style key-chain - will be offered as a free gift for orders
I find this small object to be a powerful reminder of the most
important thing in our life, our family and home, making an
“urban” Odysseus out of ourselves.
design itself is a combination of different cultures, different styles,
different eras all encapsulating the essence of the human voyage. At
the center there is a replica I've made of the ancient Roman coin from my private
collection. The writing
around it is in Hebrew and I actually took it from Led Zeppelin's
"Kashmir". It says: “Father
of the four
winds, fill my sails across the sea of years".
The meaning of the four words in Hebrew on the outer frame is " The further one
travels the less one knows"
taken from the Tao te Ching.
There are different meanings and layers in this piece. Our protagonist
- the Roman soldier building empires that eventually crumble down
through the sea of years, therefore seeking refuge from the delusions
of this world-hence the prayer surrounding the glyph.
The Hebrew letters/fonts were taken from the Dead Sea Scrolls that were
written by the Essenes during the times of the second temple in
Jerusalem, and were actually destroyed by the Roman empire. It is a
symbol of the false human perception of the “us and
them”, and the false dualistic perception.
Over the course of time we change roles as friends and foes, but beyond
this illusion there is only Oneness and unity. The four words on the
outer frame are the final lesson that each of us can take. It says “The further one
travels the less one knows”
taken from the Tao Te Ching, probably the best book ever written. This
entire concept is meant to lead the wearer of the pendant to the
realization that this entire world is his inner interpretation and that
his source of knowledge
and strength is always within him.
