Please select your preference from the drop down box - numbers refer to the last photo.

Each figure wears a woven cloak and has a medicine bag filled with a protective blend of dried herbs and plants from folklore which are traditionally considered to aid protection and sleep.

Each figure is also filled with our protective herb blend which is sealed inside with a plug of bog oak.

Figure #1 is made from Iceni bog oak from the Celtic tribal lands of Britain once walked by the Iceni queen, Boudica. Figure #2 is made from Avalonian bog oak from the area of the Somerset Levels near Glastonbury, the fabled Isle of Avalon. Both woods are around 2,300 years old.

These Dream Walkers are not free-standing. They are perfect to place beneath your pillow, or upon a surface near your bed. They also feel good to hold during meditation or for ritual use.

General information
Similar to the Tree Spirit figures, these are our smaller Dream Walker figures. They are based on the prehistoric anthropomorphic figures found in Britain and Europe during archaeological excavations. Many of the originals reside in museum collections. These figures are Spirit of Old's take on what prehistoric people were making and using in the area, and an interpretation of their spirituality - an ancient idea brought forward for use in modern witchcraft.

The Dream Walkers have a defined purpose: protection during sleep. Each figure is created specifically with this in mind, and they are crafted from carefully gathered, earthy materials sourced locally. The main wood of each Dream Walker is selected from a variety including yew root, hazel and blackthorn from the Stonehenge area, and also from British bog oak from Suffolk, dated to the the Iron Age, so just over two thousand years old. Most, though not all, of the figures are free-standing - if this is important to you, please email [email protected] to find out about a particular figure.

Crafted with real Celtic soul.
