This lovely altar amulet is made from Devon Plum wood from a friends garden. It is extremely tactile and features a hand burnt Spiral Goddess design. Plum Wood is thought to symbolise endurance, inner strength and unyielding courage. Zhu Xi, a noted Song Dynasty Confucian scholar, gave the plum four virtues: the great potential in the bud, prosperity in the flower, harmony in the fruit, and rightness in its maturity—all of which embody the characteristics of heaven (qian), according to the Book of Change.
The Spiral Goddess represents the power of the divine feminine and is a symbol of Gaia, Mother Earth with all her abundance, life giving energy and serenity.
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 19cm /7.5".
All our handmade items are created and infused with love, positive intentions and a little magic )0(
