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.
These hand-crafted nature balls, round like our planet, are carved with animals we know and love, and are made to be touched.
