Pagan Eye: Corn Dollies for Lammas at MWM

Here is another photograph I took at the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic earlier this year - this time of corn dollies. The label next to them said:
Corn dollies or kern babies are most usually associated with Lammas (August 1), but they are actually made throughout the year and are an important representation of how the Goddess changes as the seasons change. In spring she is the Maiden, in summer the Mother and in winter the Crone.
On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it - a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to badwitch1234@gmail.com Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
