The Symbol of The Hiram Key as seen by Robert Lomas

Towards the end of Turning The Hiram Key, Robert says this about symbolism.

Masonic truths are traditionally illuminated by symbols, so I have drawn a symbol of the Hiram Key which represents my truth and feelings about Masonry. The symbol is threefold, and I will describe it from my scientist�s viewpoint, although you may choose to interpret it differently.

The head of the key, the part I hold to turn it, is made up of the mystic sign. The square represents the independence of the brain�s autonomous systems of arousal and quiescence. The compass symbolises a tool to measure, control and understand their responses. Together the square and compasses combine to form a lozenge-shaped handle for the key. It is linked by a square-section shaft to the symbol of the centre, the shape which engages with and unlocks the Glory there. It is a circle bounded by two pillars and represents the balance between light and darkness, good and bad, arousal and quiescence, the centre and the periphery. At the middle of the circle is the point from which you can no longer err.

The Hiram Key Pin

This symbol is  used on the front cover of the new book, and when Robert shared his thoughts a symbol to represent his thoughts on the meaning of The Hiram Key with his daughter Delyth, who is a Jewellery Designer she made him the symbol into a sterling silver pin for him to wear.

This pin is available from Delyth Jewellery.

It will be on sale in the London, Preston, and Bedford shops of Toye, Kenning & Spencer.
