This art doll is enhanced with the following meaningful and symbolic features:
FOX: The Symbolic meaning of Fox is a reminder to everyone to Love what you do and to do it with glorious and playful enthusiasm. Fox is a symbol of being Light - hearted. To be "Foxy", is to be very clever~ almost genius and quick on your toes, in both conversation and in circumstances that need quick thinking, and spontaneous ideas, solutions or responses. The fox symbolizes cleverness, slyness, and is known in some cultures as being a trickster. In other cultures like the Celtic belief system, the fox is seen as a spirit guide, who helps you navigate the spirit world. Foxes are symbols of spirituality, creation, omens, and the afterlife.
SINGLE CELTIC SPIRAL: represents radiation of ethereal energy. It can help with balance, direction, initiation, progress, connection, expansion, awareness and all-round development.
If we look at it as a line spiralling inwards, it may stand for the journey of the self from outer materialistic world to the inner cosmic world. On the other hand, if we look at it as a line spiralling outwards, it may mean the expansion of the consciousness of the self that begins at the core and spreads outwards, encompassing learning and experiences.
~ A spiral symbol represents the processes of both, creation and self-realization.
CARNELIAN: symbolises bold energy, warmth, and a joy that lingers as much as it empowers and stimulates. It’s known for being a stone of courage, endurance, energy, leadership, motivation and good fortune.
ORANGE: is the colour of joy and creativity. It promotes a sense of general wellness and emotional energy that should be shared, such as compassion, passion and warmth. Orange can help a person recover from disappointments, a wounded heart or a blow to one's pride. Orange is stimulating, vibrant and flamboyant.
