Details

This wand is made of green ash, and is the first of it's kind in my shop. Not only is this the first time that I have carved green ash ( which I find very pleasing ) but the design is entirely new as well. This is the second edition to my animal theme collection. The first being falco sparvious ( the kestrel ) which sold recently. ( Check it out under sold listings )

Here is a very interesting story about snakes in Irish history and culture.

"Even though snakes never inhabited Ireland, as in the rest of the ancient world both the serpent and the dragon were ancient symbols of life, fertility, wisdom and immortality for the Celts. Ancient Celtic ornamental work is entwined with serpents and dragons. The Celtic Knot can be seen as a never-ending serpent. A large stone with a carved serpent is found at the sacred cairn sites of Knowth. The megalithic structure of Brug na Bóinne (Newgrange) has multiple serpent-like spirals on the entrance stone.

In Scotland there is the earthen serpent at Glen Feochan, Loch Nell. The Pictish Aberlemno Serpent Stone is engraved with a serpent and other symbols. The torque collar, a symbol of kingship and status was created in the form of a hybrid horned dragon/snake. The serpent was connected to healing pools and springs and the Druids believed the serpent had healing powers together with a certain type of egg shaped stone called a “serpent’s egg.” 

The primal connection of Goddess to serpent to earth was alive all across the ancient world. Corra, the Great Serpent Goddess of Ireland and Scotland, was probably there before the Milesians (the ancestors of the current day Celts) arrived. She was probably there before the Tuatha de Danaan arrived. Corra, whose name is almost forgotten today, embodied the Earth, calling forth the serpents of life, death and rebirth to twine the magic of eternity around the lives of our ancestors.

Corra is of the earth and yet She can also transform into a crane, symbolizing the transformation of body to spirit on our journey through the great circle of life.

Scabbard
Total length; 11 1/2"in
Fits up to 1.5" in flat belt. Woven belts ( such as shown ) must be smaller.

Belt slides through slot in loop which maintains the angle ( as shown) at all times. Best worn at the small of the back, or front.
Side carry not recommended ( gets caught on things)
Scabbard is made of real leather and is firmly hand sewn, hand riveted and even sealed and glued together. If it falls apart without undo cause, return for repairs free of charge ( it won't fall apart 👍)

Wand TLC should include an occasional waxing for the shaft only ( every 6-12 months ) any wood wax with work. I use Howard brand premium paste wax.
For the handle, you can carefully apply either a water based glue ( such as modge podg or Elmer's ) to hold the bark - yup that's the real original bark - or another acrylic sealer. Again, every 6-12 months.

Scabbard maintenance is suggested to maintain leather health and color. Suggested products include snow seal, saddle soap, and baseball glove oils or any other leather conditioner. ( Note that all products are likely to effect the color of the leather. Saddle soap was the original conditioner I used and using this product consistently may prevent changes in color)

If you have any other maintenance or other wandly questions ( totally a word ) let me know!
