TERRA iNCOGNITA SPIRITILE
No. 210"May your trails be crooked, winding, and dangerous, leading to the most amazing view." - Edward Abbey
The Story Behind This Tile:
Something endures - as though an invisible thread connects - throughout the writings of explorers. Edward Abbey, Amelia Earhart, Jack London, John Muir... their words are soaked in expansive mystery of the world. They paint breathtaking landscapes through imaginative sentences. Abbey's explorations leap from the page with a wildness that draws out the adventurous within us. Rather than shy away from danger, Abbey says that's the thrilling part of life. What makes the precipice so worth seeing is a combination of the work we go through to climb our mountains, and the heart-pounding moment where we stand on the precipice and live from great heights. There's a wilderness out there in the world we're meant to explore - it's true - but there also lies a wilderness within us, a daunting mountain range that only through self-exploration will we rise to those mountain tops. So go. Explore. And in your walks through the world, walk also through your self.

Care & Use
CARE: Enamel artwork is best polished with household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
DISPLAYING: These delicate yet durable artworks are made to last, resist fading, shine under light, and fire up a meaningful conversation. Spiritiles can stand up on a flat surface or hang on a prized wall. They can stand alone, but love company. Each piece is sized the same to mix and match for a collection that tells your story.
HOW TO HANG: Drywall screws work great! When affixing the screw, leave a ¼" lip to rest the frame's hollow on the screw head. The art will sit securely and flush with the wall. When hanging multiple pieces, the ideal spacing between screws is 7¼" horizontal and 10½" vertical.
