Talisman Wall Hanging - Triple Goddess
A talisman is an object that someone believes holds magical properties that bring good luck to the possessor or protect the possessor from evil or harm. Throughout human history and across all cultures, a multitude of magical rituals have been conducted for different purposes and intentions. Magic rituals led to the appearance of magical objects such as amulets which are still believed to have different warding or welcoming properties, and are thought to be able to help the wearer in various regards.

The Moon represents our inner emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.
The triple goddess is a connection to all things feminine. It’s comprised of a waxing crescent, full moon, and a waning crescent. The symbol is the maiden, mother, and crone. Each phase of the moon correlates with a phase of a woman’s life.
The Maiden: Represented by the new moon. The maiden embodies purity, youth, creation, pleasure, naivety, and new beginnings. The maiden invites you to explore your spirituality, sensuality, and creativity.
The Mother: Represented by the full moon. The mother embodies love, fertility nourishment responsibility, patience, gratitude, power, and self-care. The mother invites you to master giving and receiving love.
The Crone: Represented by the fading waning moon. The crone embodies endings, wisdom, death, acceptance, and culmination. The crone invites you to accept that without death there is no birth.
This is a piece that takes many stages and processes to create and the end result showcases the care and love that has gone into its production.
Our beautiful keepsake box has been specifically designed for our Talisman Wall Hangings and is made with recycled materials and soy based inks. All artwork is original and designed and drawn by Carys. We worked with local Brisbane designers and manufactures whose environmental and ethical values align with ours. In using our bespoke packaging we are reducing the packaging needed and helping to spread our message, sharing the joy and creating awareness.
