MEANING: The oldest known (and most common in the United States) Past Master’s Symbol consists of the Compass, Square, Sun and Quadrant.

The Compass is appropriate for the symbol of a Past Master, because it is “By the Compass” that the Freemason keeps himself within due bounds of all man kind.

This symbol includes the Square as a reminder, that it is “By the Square” that the wearer governed his lodge as Master.

The Quadrant shows what angle the Compass is opened at. It also generally shows that the Compass is opened to the angle of 60 degrees, the angle of an equilateral triangle, which represents perfect balance, as all sides are of equal length, and the triangle appears the same from all directions. It therefore teaches that the man who wears this jewel has learned the lessons of Freemasonry, and lives a balanced life. It also shows that the wearer of this jewel has served equally in the South, the West, and the East.

The Sun is used in this symbol to represent that the wearer has observed the sun at:
Its meridian height in the South,
Its setting in the West, and
Its rising in the East.

The Sun also represents light. And, it is understood that the Past Master of a Craft Lodge is a source of Masonic Light to his brothers. It is also appropriate to say that the Sun represents perfect light.


THE CARVING:
My Carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings. Each piece is finished with a blend of clear oils that brings out the natural color of the wood. For more information on the process of creation, please see my profile.

SIZE:
The last picture has the piece on a quilting board, lined up on the 1 inch marks. So subtract 1 inch from the height and width for the stock size. Measurements may vary slightly from piece to piece.
