Kinetic Ancestral Scepter


After you order your Kinetic Ancestral Scepter, we will be in touch with you via email for you to give us the names and placement of your ancestors as you would like to see them on your Scepter.

When ordering your Scepter, if you select "Both" for your marbles option, we will also ask you via email which ancestral line you want represented by which metal.
The Kinetic Ancestral Scepter is an eye catching piece of art that is in fact a record of four generations of your family history. From one end, you are able to track the heritage of one of your ancestors back to her parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Then, from the other end, you are able to do the same for another of your ancestors for a total of 30 individuals. The Ancestral Scepter is two four-generation charts interwoven. For each initial individual, eight marbles represent the heritage from her or his great-grandparents giving a total of sixteen marbles in each Scepter. As the marbles roll across the generations, you will both hear and feel the gentle rumble of their kinetic motion making the Ancestral Scepter a piece of fine art that is pleasing not only to your eyes, but also to your ears and to your touch. We use a hand-rubbed oil finish to further enhance the tactile experience.

The Kinetic Ancestral Scepter can be enjoyed and displayed as it is or together with a stand or wall mount including our custom stands and wall mounts.

All of our sculptures are made from a variety of quality hardwoods including walnut, mahogany, ash, and oak. Your sculpture will be entirely unique in color and grain pattern based on the particular woods we use to create it. If you are interested in specific wood species for your sculpture, please send us an email and we will do our best to match it for you. Some requests may require additional expense to fulfill.

The Kinetic Ancestral Scepter is approximately 27 inches long.

We will complete your Kinetic Ancestral Scepter within approximately five weeks of your order.
