This lovely altar amulet is crafted from Devon Yew wood from a fallen tree in a friends garden. it is extremely tactile and features the Three Hares and vine design and natural bark on the back. This would make a wonderful addition to your altar, meditation space or a gift. The piece has then been lightly waxed with our own natural beeswax, olive oil and lavender hand-blended wax and given a little polish. Approx size 15cm / 5.5".
Yew wood symbolises regeneration, rebirth, protection, communication with the other world and was traditionally used for dowsing
Yew being a sacred Celtic tree we have also burnt the Ogham symbol for Yew (iodhadh) on the back for added strength and protection.
The three hares image is found all over the world and on many sacred and religious buildings. Very little is known about it's origins, but is thought to represent similar symbolism to the triquetra and triskele symbols and has been adapted to represent the trinity. It can be seen on the churches of Devon, England where they are known as the "Tinners' Rabbits". The Hare is a sacred symbol of the Goddess who loves the humble hare over all other creatures. The hare is also the symbol of spring and the returning light and fertility to the earth
