Craobh Airgid. The Silver Bough. Irish Wand of Death. Wooden Wand. Hand Carved. Harry Potter wands. Authentic wooden wands.
Craobh Airgid is Irish for "Silver Bough" A sacred and powerful symbol which is mention in Imram Brain " The Voyage of Bran". The silver apple branch with white apple blossoms was brought to Bran mac Febail by a mysterious woman, who disclosed that the branch of white silver was from Emain (or Emne), presumably the land where she hailed from. After singing verses describing her land as the place of delight (with poetic names such as the "Plain of White Silver"); thereafter she slipped away, and the branch sprang back to her, with Bran having no power to keep it in his grasp. Bran then mounted on a voyage and reached the Land of Women (Tír inna m-Ban), which is Emain,
The land of the branch turned out to be some sort of "Otherworld", for even though Bran and his crew believed they tarried at the Land of Women for a year, it turned out to be many years, even centuries, so that when they approached Ireland, they learned that they had become ancient history, and a member who tried to set foot on land turned into ashes. The story and power of the silver bough has strong resemblances to the Roman "golden bough" which allows a departed soul to enter the underworld.
While this wand will not get you into the underworld ( probably ) it certainly caries with it a simple, yet powerful balance of elegant purity, and dark intent. True druids and those knowledgeable in Celtic lore will be quick to spot that these symbols are not of Celtic or Irish origin. Indeed they are my own design. One naturally being my shop symbol ( I wonder if anyone has figured out what it means yet? ) and my brother's crest, he aided me in finding the hazel bough which a wand. And then there is that last one, which ardents of Harry Potter may recognize. However it is not as it seems, and only time and some luck on my part, will reveal its origin.
