A shield made to hang above your bed, desk, alter, sacred space or any personal space where you want and need protection from negative energies.
Made of canteen gourds, the center has an all seeing eye made of glass. Surrounding the eye, the Star of Lakshmi representing the eight forms of wealth...money & riches, transportation, endless prosperity, courage and victory, patience and planning, knowledge and the legacy of friends and family has been burned into the gourd using a pyrography pen.
Four pyritized fossil ammonites represent the four seasons and four triangular shaped copper beads represent the four compass points.
Each section of gourd has been banded with a thin sheet of brass and secured with vintage brass brads. They are then patinaed to give it an aged look.
Bone hair pipe (dyed dark brown), Mahogany Jasper beads, copper hex beads and copper wire make up the fringe at the bottom. The copper beads and wire have been patinaed for an aged look.
The gourds have been sealed front and back. There is a saw tooth hanger on the back for hanging.
The overall length of this piece is 11 1/2", 8 1/4" wide and 2 1/2" deep (at the eye). It was created with the intent of making it a tool for protection and should be used as such. It will also make a wonderful conversation piece in your home.
