This art doll is enhanced with the following meaningful and symbolic features:
STAR: symbol can bestow divine guidance and protection. A symbol of purity and good luck. It can evoke aspiration, inspiration, imagination, wonder, dreams, pursuits, magic and creative brilliance. It can harken a positive turning point in life.
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.
OBSIDIAN: meaning is deeply rooted in its reflective nature. It can reflect deep truths, some of which may be difficult to accept. Obsidian can cut through illusions to reveal the reality of a situation, interactions or intentions of others and yourself. It can allow you to see clearly through the façade that many people hide behind.
The Obsidian crystal stone reminds us that everyone has a good and bad side. Instead of hiding from our inner truth, Obsidian shines a light on the negativity and clears it away, helping us to choose the path leading towards light and love.
CAT symbolizes the transcendent, the supernatural and the unseen. Cat spirit animals are fanciful, magical and independent. They can appear when you need self-confidence and reassurance.
FEATHERS: evoke connection to divinity and spiritual realms, a symbol of freedom.
GOLD: Success, achievement and triumph are indicated by gold colour in colour psychology. This colour is also associated with abundance, prosperity and well being.
