This listing is for one Hand Sculpted Wild Clay Smoke-Fired Venus of Willendorf Figurine, from The heART of Ritual.

 

Over Imbolc I was inspired to create a very different type of talismanic ‘power object’ for my prayer space, a hand-sculpted wild clay smoke-fired Venus of Willendorf figurine. I was so happy with the result that I decided to create some more to offer here for those of you who feel drawn.

 

The Venus of Willendorf was discovered not far from where we live on August 7th, 1908. She is believed to be between 25,000 and 30,000 years old, carved from oolitic limestone, and tinted with red ochre. This goddess statue has long intrigued many, and given her voluptuous shape and sensual curvaceous figure, she is believed to be both a fertility ritual figure and a representation of the mother goddess/divine feminine.

 

Working with this delicious feminine respresentation and such a tactile piece of sacred art speaks to me too of unconditional body acceptance and embracing age during what is a rather fragile time for many women in society right now.

 

These have been lovingly created from hand dug wild clay.  Each is hand sculpted to the shape and size of the original Venus of Willendorf, and smoke fired in the kiln. Each of these is completely unique and the accompanying photographs should give you an idea as to what to expect.

 

As you can see from the photograph, these are large, tactile, voluptious, and simply gorgeous ritual talismans that honour all aspects of sacred feminine energy. You will find that it's hard to leave it out of your hand.

 

As mentioned above, the original Venus was found to be tinted with red ochre. While the ones you see here are lovingly handmade using iron rich (ochre) wild clay, each of these ritual talismans comes with hand gathered, stone ground, finely powdered red ochre that I have collected as I felt it would be nice for you to apply this your Venus as part of your own rituals.
