Pagan Eye: A Wicker Woman
After last week's picture of a wicker man, here's a wicker woman - or wicker Gaia.
The lovely photo was taken by Carolien Avalynn who lives in the Netherlands and writes the blog Avalynn Sfeer & magie.
She said: "We have a wickerman in our pagan inspired festival in Lisse in the Netherlands every year at Lughnasadh and this time it was so awesomely pretty! Many people put their little offerings inside the wickergaia's belly before she was set on fire. The music, clapping and cheering of such a big audience is always very thrilling :)"
Thanks for sending me the great image Carolien!
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures.
