Woden Dream Walker (DW012 #2)

£50.00 Past item

This Woden Dream Walker is crafted from the root of a windfallen yew which was carefully and respectfully gathered from the land surrounding Stonehenge in southern Britain.

Woden, chief of the Anglo-Saxon Gods, gave his right eye in exchange for wisdom and was considered to be a god of war, learning, poetry and magick. He fashioned the earth and the sky from the dead body of the giant Ymir, and from an ash tree and an alder he created the first man and woman. There are several important archaeological finds from Britain and northern Europe which are of prehistoric wooden figures. Many date back several millennia and have similarities with Woden. This is Spirit of Old's interpretation.

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.

Each Dream Walker figure is created specifically with magick 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 en[email protected] to find out about a particular figure.

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

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. In times passed, it was considered to act as a protective charm, warding off evil.

Betony is traditionally associated with protection, both of the area surrounding it, and of the person carrying or wearing it. If placed beneath the pillow, it's considered to protect the sleeper against nightmares. It's also associated with dispelling negativity and soothing tensions.

The pieces are perfect to place beneath your pillow, or upon a surface near your bed or altar. They also feel good to hold during meditation or for ritual use.

Crafted with real Celtic soul.

The Dream Walker available in this listing is shown in the main photos and also is the lighter one in the group photo.
