Karuna Colonette Studs
Karuna Colonette Studs
Named after the Sanskrit for 'Compassion', these colonette shaped spires are intricately etched from original illustrations of the ruins of Angkor Wat. The Lotus Bud shaped ends mimic the spire shapes of the temples which point towards the sky, connecting the cosmos with Earth. The Lotus bud tips reflect the many Lotus flowers blooming at Sunrise on the water surrounding Angkor Wat, signifying Love, compassion, joy and Equanimity. Tiny pyramid geometric detailing on the sides of the colonettes contrast with the organic etched textures.
