Picked up this 24 x 24 Bursting Star Wall Hanging at the Royal Oak Farmers Market it's more so a Flea Market or was at least in 1989 when this was bought there as they didn't sell much or any produce.
Made in Texas with 296 smaller pieces of stained wood (plus the border and frame) signed Wood Quilts by Detweiler 1988

    Visual here...Indian design/'Aztecish' To Me...The sight of stained wood is unique to Me..Like Tiles..Symetrical without trying to be..Natural...I do wonder if there is a significance in a Eight pointed Star???

    Not sure about this one:
    The eight-pointed star appears in cultures around the globe. It can be found within national flags, and even religious iconography.
    The eight-pointed star is the Star of Redemption or Regeneration and represents baptism.
    In ancient mythology, the 8-pointed star represents the God of the heaven who was called Anu (Aunu, Aun).
    The Occult consider it the Chaos Star.
    OR maybe as it was made in Texas the guy was high and tried to make the Rising Star (of Texas)

    LOL!!! You mention' Anu...Where did this 'Sect' originate???

    From Sumerian cosmogony as dome that covered our flat earth, Anu was said to be the Supreme Ruler of the Kingdom of Heaven?

    Lot of ancient history from there, How did the eight point star relate?
  7. brunswick brunswick, 5 months ago
    Yes..As a matter of fact..The Ancient relics found in the town of 'Ur' in Iraq is considered the oldest civilized city..According to the Christian Bible..Old Testament patriarch Abraham was from there...still working on '8' points...

    Ok...Read this..It tells who designed the '8' point by determing it by 'Directions'...A one road of law it's called for each point.

    I'll think of it as the Star of Redemption or Regeneration for now need those the most LOL

    Interesting wonder if I'll look at it differently now, Just looked on the back it's titled "Lone Starburst" wood quilts by Detweiler, looks like they made a few.
