Slate Om Wall Hanging
Carved wall hanging with Om symbol.
OM is most associated with the 6th (third eye) and 7th (crown) chakras. Some scholars say that the shape of the visual om symbol embodies each of its syllables -- the three is the Sanskrit letter for "ahh," that same three with the mini S on it is "oooh," and the bindhi and half-moon at the top are the "mmm." Some say the symbol is connected to Ganesh, the Hindu half-elephant god who removes obstacles, because if you squint, you can see his rotund curves and graceful trunk represented.
