Wolf Mother Pendant (PE1504#1)
A gently round-faced Wolf Mother pendant, carved into a Celtic stylised Wolf, an animal which has long been regarded with awe. Ceridwen, the Celtic moon and fertility Goddess was associated with wolves and there are many myths and legends about the wolf being a close companion of humans and tales of nurture. Conversely, the wolf's ferocity is also well told, reminding us of their power. The wolf has associations with the moon, wisdom and in Celtic lore, also with winter from Samhain to Imbolc.
It is newly carved from bog oak, from the area of the Somerset Levels near Glastonbury, the fabled Isle of Avalon. The wood is approximately 2,300 years old, dating back to the Iron Age, and is a beautifully deep, rich colour.
The pendant is filled with dried mugwort and betony and the herbs are sealed inside with a plug of blackthorn wood, traditionally considered a plant of magick and secrets.
