Wands for Fryr

by Jane Fairhurst :: Contact :: Portfolio

Whilst researching ancient Norse culture I read about groups of older women who accompanied fighters into battle. They didn't fight but stood overlooking the battle and using their wands they wove the fates of those fighting. Unable to discover any images of these wands I decided to create my own using ash staffs wrapped in fabrics and hung with collections of shiny objects, small toys, animal bones, beads and nazars.
