Toadstools are an amazing natural phenomenon which I completely love, they are just so magical! They have many different meanings and functions throughout the world’s folklore.
According to European folklore (mainly British), faerie folk would gather in circles of toadstools (also known as faerie rings) and would dance and celebrate there. Great superstition surrounds the faerie rings, for to step inside one could trap you there for many a year or even indefinitely.
In Chinese culture, toadstools are a symbol of good luck and rebirth. In the realm where the Immortals lived, sacred toadstools grew. To eat of these would grant you immortality.
In Norse Mythology the god Odin rode on a mystical eight-legged horse called Sleipnir. As Sleipnir flew over the lands his spit would fall down to earth and where it landed, red toadstools with white spots (fly agaric toadstools) would spring from the ground.
I hand printed these cream unbleached cotton pouches with a hand carved toadstool cluster stamp on my etching press. I finished the pouches with cream, red and burgundy poly-satin ribbons, iridescent cream and red plastic beads, pearlesque red plastic beads and red wooden beads. The pouches are lined with burgundy cotton. The bottom of the pouch has also been boxed so that it will stand up better with contents inside of it
They are great for storing all sorts of things, such as: Rune Stones, Dice, Tarot Cards (the pouch will fit a deck of 70mm x120mm tarot cards), Gem Stones, Jewellery etc..
Size: approx. 15cm x 24,5cm
Please be aware that colours may differ slightly due to screen display.
You will only receive the pouch when ordering this; the stones and dice in the photos are not included!
