Wheat Mother 2018 By Victoria Musson

Wheat Mother 2018 By Victoria Musson


A stunning contemporary interpretation of the old ancient corn dollie, designed and hand made by natural fibre artist Victoria Musson. The Wheat mother is approx 38 cm in height, made from hand reaped wheat with a little blush of barley from the 2018 harvest in South Derbyshire. She wears a simple hessian gown tied with a belt of two acorns to denote strength and power. She also has the emblem of the sun made from wheat straw on the front of her gown. A tradition red ribbion is attached to symbolise the sacrifice of the cycle of sowing and reaping. She has a simple loop to the back so she can be hung up or placed upon the home altar.
