Irish Zodiac Spirit Dolls

By: Rathart  05/12/2011

Our Irish Spirit Dolls are based on the Celtic Tree Zodiac.

Trees were a central part of Celtic spirituality.  It is said that the Celts designated a tree to each moon phase in accordance with its secret and magical properties. 

These 'Spirit of the Forest Dolls' handcrafted by Catherine Bulfin and Nikki Podmore are made with wire, exquisite yarns and sparkling threads.

They bend in whatever shape you want them to be in and each Spirit Doll has its own special nest.

These Spirit dolls have been individually made to convey the character of the trees in the Ogham Tree Calendar.

There are 13 Lunar months per year:
