Ethically harvested* and produced fairly by artisans in Indonesia, these gorgeous bone sculptures represent the ultimate duality of our existence: life and death. Bone magic is potent and powerful – and is different than working with any gem, crystal, or mineral. Bones inherently remind us of our mortal nature, the fragile part of our being that we simultaneously work to avoid thinking about and
yet must face at the same time. Working with bone magic connects us to our ancestors, to animal magic (particularly that of the animal the bone was carved from), and pushes you toward the understanding of your spiritual nature.
These beautiful carvings come from the Indonesian Water Buffalo, an animal that represents abundance and fulfillment across many communities. Cultures around the world have revered the buffalo for its strength. This is an animal that reminds us to have gratitude for all of life’s blessings, and encourages us to stay grounded as we move through life toward our goals.
**IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ**
*NO animals were harmed in the making of these pieces. The bones from these carvings come from the Water Buffalo that sustains a small Indonesian village. The people there respect and revere the water buffalo, and after harvesting the animals to feed their families, they use every part of the animal, including the bones for these sacred carvings, as a way to honor the animal’s life and their culture.
The honeybee represents abundance, sweetness, and collective integrity above all else. She works tirelessly with her sisters for the highest and greatest good of the collective, and she reminds us that the fruits of our labors are indeed sweet. When we work together, we all win. When we put the community above the individual, we all benefit. Honeybee reminds us to find the sweetness in life, to indulge, enjoy life and the beauty around us.
This listing is for ONE (1) Bone carved honeybee of your size choosing. Please choose from three styles from the drop down menu. Bees range in size between 1.2 and 1.5 inches long.
EACH BEE IS DRILLED with a hole across the base of the head for beading or wearing as a pendant.
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth and I cannot guarantee them completely. They are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. 🙂
