Have you noticed?
anchors are the CRAZE this summer. From clothing to cupcakes, the nautical theme has been playing a major role in fashion and style. It's not surprising as anchors, and their symbolisms, have been cherished by people for millenia.
Most commonly we know of an anchor as a tool to hold a boat in one place. This being said, there are hundreds, if not thousands of different types of anchors. An anchor might be the most important safety tool on a vessel as it can keep the boat from wrecking into rocks or drifting off to sea.
The earliest anchors were found as part of a collection of Egyptian tomb furniture. They looked much different, as Egyptians using cone-shaped stakes and ropes to tie their boats.
Anchors are mentioned in the Christian bible, and it is a symbol that is repeatedly found in the Roman catacombs. In Christianity, the anchor represents the hope we have in Christ beyond this life.
When I see an anchor, it instills feelings of nostalgia and safety. I view an anchor as a way to stay grounded and secure and to keep myself from "lifting off into the clouds," as some Pisces do.
I plan to create many more anchor pieces. I have some great design ideas that I just can't wait to share with you!
