Blackthorn Witch Figure (AP017)
This newly crafted figurine is carved from blackthorn wood and blackthorns into a strong and powerful witch.
The wood was gathered with respect from an ancient spring in southern Britain, held sacred for millennia and with links to the Old Ways and associations with fertility. The spring is one of the sources of the River Itchen whose name has connections with a pre-Roman Goddess, Ica. Very little written information exists about her today, but Ica is a Goddess truly of the ancient land in this area and there is still a strong sense of her at the spring. Real magick, old magick is still to be found in the energies of this place.
The figurine is free-standing on a flat surface. The natural bark has been left intact on the body, giving a wonderful contrast of colour and the piece feels full of positive and protective energies.
The figure is filled with dried mugwort and betony, soothing herbs from folklore which are traditionally considered to aid protection and dispel negativity. The herbs are sealed inside with a plug of mistletoe, traditionally considered to be a sacred plant of the Druids. This piece is infused with the energies of this potent ancient herb from inside and will make an excellent addition to your altar or sacred space.
The Witch has a woven cloak, raven feathers and a raven's foot. A hare bone and a piece of quartz have been added, along with three blackthorns, and a Hampshire hazelnut with a spiral added, an ancient symbol of life and lifeforce. The figure is finished with a medicine bag also filled with dried mugwort and betony.
A wonderfully special piece made with real Celtic soul.
