Pagan Portals - Poppets and Magical Dolls - Dolls for spellwork, witchcraft and seasonal celebrations Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Poppets are dolls used for sympathetic magic, and are designed in the likeness of individuals in order to represent them in spells to help, heal or harm.

The word poppet comes from the Middle Ages in England, originally meaning a small doll or child, and it is still in use today as a name of endearment.

The term is older than the phrase `Voodoo doll'. Pagan Portals - Poppets and Magical Dolls explores the history of poppets and offers a practical guide to making and using them in modern witchcraft.

It also covers seasonal dolls, from Brigid dolls, used in celebrations for the first stirrings of spring, to fairy dolls enjoyed in tree-dressing at Yuletide.

Other topics covered include spirit dolls, ancestor dolls and dolls as representations of mythological beings and creatures from folklore.

The newest book from Lucya Starza, author of Every Day Magic: A Pagan Book of Days.
