The word is composed of three separate words. Mer, which means light Ka, means spirit and Ba, means body. Put together these three words connote the union of spirit with the body, surrounded by light.
Making this shape after being drawn to its geometry, a friend asked if I would make one for him. After completing that one I made these two ogethert. Then another friend casually said oh, you making Merkaba’s now? I had no idea what I was making. The thought of this gives me tingles or waves of emotion.
So with this being said, I am grateful for the opportunity to make the Merkaba and if you have a special request, I am happy to oblige.
"The Hunter and The Chaser” 8’ x 4’ x 4’ Bronze/Stainless Steel $20,000
After years of wanting to pan for gold in the Black Hills I finally got my chance. A friend and local of the area took me out for a brief afternoon in his early model Willy’s jeep. We found nothing, and if it wasn’t for his constant complaint - “this would be more fun with a bottle of whiskey", I would not be telling this story.
We panned several places and the temperature dropped 40 degrees in a matter of minutes. I said lets go back and I will go get that bottle of whisky and meet him at his house. We had a tall drink and then asked if we could tour his wife's no kill shelter (basically a zoo for misfit animals of all kinds). The next thing I remember I was not sure if what I was looking at was a deer or a dog. As we got a little closer I just plain fell in love. Little did I know at the time I had just found a 65 lb. gold nugget.
