The Shamanic Wand

Shamanic wand in Hornbeam - pyrographed.
I'm quite fascinated at the moment with Shamanism and Shamanic practices. I wanted to create something that was primitive and yet unique so I used a negative style of pyrography to create this design on Hornbeam. The design holds representations of shamanic animals, wolf, Native American Thunder Bird, the arrow of power and on the other side the eye in the sun, the snake etc. I love this effect. The wand itself is spirited yet melancholy, like taking a walk on a grey day. This wand now has a new home )0(
