When I designed the new staHHr logo, I sought something universal, "simple" and visually appealing. I desired something that would convey many different things to many different types of beings simultaneously, as well as trigger ancestral memory and activate the volumes of information stored in our DNA. A student of ancient Khemet/Kush, I was drawn to the symbols of that region instantly. The shen stood out the most, because it spoke to EXACTLY what I was vibrating on personally as well as what we as a whole would benefit from tapping in to as we realign and shift paradigms: longevity, protection, leadership, feminine principle, etc. Any name (ren) encapsulated in the shenu (elongated shen, you may have seen it referred to erroneously as a "cartouche") is said to protect both the name and bearer of the name from negativity and give them longevity.
(shen)"Appearance: The shen ring is at first glance a circle with a horizontal line in a tangent along its bottom edge. However the shen is more than meets the eye. The shen was a stylized loop of rope with each end visible.
Meaning: In many cultures, the circle was a symbol of "eternity." Such symbolism is evident in familiarities such as the wedding ring of Western cultures, the Gnostic ouroboras and the ying-yang of China.
The same is true of the shen ring. Deriving its name from the root shenu (to encircle), it was almost always a symbol of eternity. However, the shen ring also held the idea of "protection." It most often carried this connotation when seen in its elongated variation, the cartouche; which surrounded the birth and throne names of the Pharaohs.
The shen frequently appeared depicted in the claws of the avian forms of the falcon-god Heru/Horus and various vulture goddesses. An example of this can be seen to the right. The shen was also depicted at the base of the notch palm branches held by the god of eternity, Heh."
