Celebrate the changes of season by displaying your calendar using a replica of the distinctive Torii gates of Japan.
A torii (Japanese: 鳥居, literally bird abode) is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of a shrine, where it marks the transition from the mundane to the sacred.
I thought it appropriate for a hanging scroll for my Sky and Nature Calendars. You might say it facilitates the passage from the calendar into the world of nature.
The current year's Sky and Nature Calendar is included with the scroll, but you can also order the scroll only.
Changing the calendar pages each month is easy, and the display scroll can be used year after year with each new calendar for a lifetime of sky-gazing!
May the Torii gate serve as a reminder that wherever we are and whatever our situation, we are always a part of nature ~ every season, every day, every moment.
Made of light-toned Basswood, the display holder in time will develop a deep, rich tone the color of honey or butterscotch. The wood is lightly sealed with shellac and has a mounting hole at the back for wall mounting.
For the new month, simply turn the fixture over, lift the retaining bar, change the page, and replace the retaining bar. Watch the accompanying video for more information.
Dimensions: 16" W x 4" H x 1-1/2" D
The Torii Gate Calendar Display fits my Sky and Nature calendars but also accommodates all calendars up to 12" wide.
