Bronze Masonic Plaque with
Scottish and York Rite Symbolism
Bronze Masonic plaque (measuring 20.5 x 17.5 inches - mounted on oak) was
designed and created by Wor. Bro. Harvey L. Shoemaker of Twin City Lodge
No. 509, G.R.C., Waterloo, Ontario.
The original wood carving took
over a year to complete. Six copies were then cast
in bronze and one in brass using a sand casting. All of these skills were
learned during the process.
As you can observe, the central
feature of the plaque is the V.O.S.T.L. flanked
by two pillars with a third behind it. All of the working tools of
all three degrees, the mosaic pavement, the
winding stairs and all of the symbols of
York and Scottish Rite can be found on the plaque. It
is a tribute to both his talents and commitment as a Mason that lead this
Wor. Bro. to create such a lasting testimonial to
the symbols of Freemasonry.
"Thanks" to V. Wor. Bro. Bruce Miller of Twin City Lodge No. 509 for
submitting the picture and description of this wonderful bronze plaque.
