soul bird

these handcrafted wooden soul birds by sanna annukka are awesome. annukka describes the story behind the birds as, "in karelia there was an ancient belief in the sielulintu or soul bird. the sielulintu was thought to deliver the soul to newborn babies and also to transport the soul to the afterlife at the moment of death. it was believed the sielulintu protected a persons soul at it's most vulnerable; when dreaming, and it was tradition to keep a carved wooden bird by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep."


the superstitous part of me totally wants one to keep by my bed.
