Stonehenge Hazel Dream Walker (DW032)
This friendly little figure wears a woven cloak, carries a piece of dried mugwort root, 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.
Mugwort has been used for millennia to 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. In times past it was considered to act as a protective charm, warding off evil.
The figure is made from hazel wood which was gathered, with care and respect, from the land surrounding Stonehenge in southern Britain. It's also filled with our protective herb blend which is sealed inside with a plug of ancient Avalonian bog oak.
The Dream Walker is 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.
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.
