A Background To The Obelisk

A Background To The Obelisk –
One of our most popular glass awards is the obelisk glass award; it is a spectacular engraved glass award available in three sizes and has a large area for engraving, but instead of telling you all about how wonderful the obelisk glass award is and why it’s a great engraved glass award for your business or industry, we thought we would tell you a bit about the obelisk instead;
The obelisk is traditionally a shape and design from Egypt, usually only erected in pairs they can be found at the entrances of ancient and beautiful Egyptian temples. The style and shape of the obelisk was thought to symbolise a petrified ray that penetrates the clouds and disperses any negative forces that create storms. What a brilliant background behind a shape and a superb reason to give someone a glass award for doing things similar to this.
The largest of our obelisk glass awards stands at 25cm in height (10 inches) and is a stunning and beautiful glass award, but it is by far the largest obelisk in the world. The largest obelisk is the Washing Monument, it was conceived in 1832 and too decades to build. To this day it is still twice as tall as any other obelisk in the world.
Written in Washington’s Monument, by Gordon it says that the obelisk is silent only as stone can be yet nonetheless it seem to say something that something as nothing else can and this is ‘here is something significant’ and if that is what you are looking for from a glass award then our obelisk glass award could be exactly what you are looking for.
