ANFAD & DRWG Handmade OOAK Goth Horror Welsh Witch Art Doll * Mother and Child Doll
" Hey! Back. Off. Don't crowd me and keep your hands away from my brat. I don't like strangers sniffing about where they're not wanted. Are you looking for trouble? Maybe I can help...
OK. That's better. Now back to the business at hand. IF I choose you, (and that's a big IF) Consider yourself lucky. If I decide to take you into my care, I will safeguard you as if you were one of mine own. And nobody messes with mine own! Got that?"
"The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” ― Rumi
Meet Anfad (means mischief) and her son Drwg (means wicked). You might have your hands full with these two... Anfad's rather green and fierce looking paper clay face is crowned with a real lichen headdress with cone, leaf, hand painted paper rose and rhinestone details. Her glaring eyes are hand painted and poured resin.
She wears rhinestone studs in her pierced eyebrows and ears, top and bottom. Anfad is wrapped up in a ruffled hand crocheted cloak of teal/olive/grey-green/turquoise wool yarns. Her necklace is blue seed beads with an antique brass LEAF pendant.
Her long dark blonde hair is mohair locks and her body is fashioned using light blue melton, wood skeleton and stuffed with carded wool. Her skirt is natural grey, locally sourced welsh sheep's fleece.
Anfad cradles her greenish child in a hand painted wooden box with a felt blanket, real moss and Drwg's pet ROOSTER, Gormless.
At Anfad's feet you will find a handmade felt nest surrounded by hand painted paper roses containing a single HEMATITE semi precious stone.
LEAVES: symbolize happiness, growth and rebirth.
ROOSTER: In Celtic symbolism, rooster can symbolize a messenger to the underworld. A rooster spirit guide prompts one to have a humorous side to their character and helps them remain jovial. Those with a rooster spirit animal are high on energy, with a fiery spirit and an immense passion. They possess an enthusiastic and witty nature. Often very optimistic they utilize every opportunity coming their way.
HEMATITE: is a grounding and protecting stone. It may absorb toxic emotions that are holding you back from your natural state of joy and vitality. It can clear away negative feelings from stress, anxiety and worry. It helps bring us back to equilibrium. It can help counteract confusion and bring clarity. It can support pragmatic action to pursue your highest goals and can help stave off overwhelm. It can enhance logic, memory and intuition. It can foster self esteem and can improve relationships. Hematite can block negative energy and surround you with the feelings of safety and security.
