Well, I have a hammer
And I have a bell
And I have a song to sing
All over this land.
~Pete Seeger/Lee Hays
A hammer represents the sound of construction and symbolizes making a new life. It can also be used to demolish and remove worn objects to make way for new opportunities.
The sound of a hammer, a gavel, can suggest justice, declaration of a decision. Finality.
Building, renewal. Integrity, conclusiveness.
