DEER MEDICINE OBJECTS
Part of my practice with Deer Woman has been to create objects of medicine with antlers, crystals, paint, prayers and ceremony.
The development of these skills was a significant part of initiation with her.
I make these objects as bespoke ceremonial pieces in select circumstances.
They are always initiatory in nature and very powerful.
Here in Tasmania we have Fallow deer. These are the Antlers I mostly use.
They are all foraged in the forest and are naturally shed.
I will not touch hunted antlers.
As it is only the male who has antlers I find working with them a powerful balancing and healing. As I create I witness an amazing union of the feminine and masculine in every piece.
