Icelandic Stave - To Cause Fear in an Enemy
"If you want your foe to be afraid of you whenever he sees you, then carve these staves on an oak branch and wear it in the middle of your breast & emdash; and see to it that you see him before he sees you."
This is the ninth spell in the Galdrabók, an Iclandic magical grimoire from the 17th century.
- Material: Solid oak (quercus robur) harvested from natural-fallen branches
- Dimenstions: approx. 2.5" - 4" long, about the thickness of a pencil (or a bit thicker). Dimensions depend on the raw materials available.
- Entirely hand-made and burned
- Each piece is a bit different, because it's all natural wood. Pictured is the first one made.
