Solstice Moon Goddess figurine (AP011)
This figurine, completed on the recent Winter Solstice, is crafted from hazel wood and carved into a beautiful Goddess with a full moon above her head. The moon is finished with silver leaf and the figurine is free-standing on a flat surface and is wonderfully tactile - perfect for holding during meditation. The wood was gathered with respect from the ancient, sacred site of Stonehenge in southern Britain. The back has the natural bark left intact giving a wonderful contrast of colour (see fourth photo). The piece feels full of positive energies.
The Goddess is filled with yarrow, grasses and white clover, all carefully gathered from the ancient, sacred prehistoric mound of Silbury Hill in southern England. Hedge-gathered herbs considered sacred to the Druids are also added to the mix - mugwort, vervain, enchanter's nightshade, bluebell, juniper, knapweed, heather flowers, lavender and mistletoe. The herbs are permanently sealed inside with a protective plug of ancient British bog oak.
Yarrow brings its strong associations with clairvoyance and powers to promote divination. Lavender is a powerful herb which brings peace, harmony and encourages positive thought and restful sleep. Vervain is a sacred cleansing and purification herb. Juniper has strong associations with healing and mistletoe is added for its traditional connections with Druids. Mugwort has been used for millennia to aid clairvoyance, lucid dreaming and astral projection. Our ancestors drank tea made from the leaves and it has also been used in incenses or smoked to induce visions.
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.
