 Yve says of the Deer Totem Orb, "The deer orb represents the importance of balance between masculine and feminine. Following the path of the deer can lead us to the unexpected places of choice. The deer can show us how to work through any problems with grace... gentle nudges are kinder than a push.  Deer tempt us to release the trappings of the material world, making a bridge between the wild and the tame."

This wonderful piece is supplied boxed with a leaflet about the orb and its creation. A beautiful gift to treasure. 

 

About Totem Orbs

Over the ages mankind has used meditation as a step towards achieving a special state of grace. In the practice of meditation, ancients focused on personal totems or emblems. It was often a creature that encompassed qualities most admired or desired. 

These totems were to be seen and touched, an aid to help keep in tune with the natural rhythms of life.
