Skull and yew wood fetiche

Owl regains her voice with the help of a yew wood jaw. An example of wood used to replace bone. Such a practice in old myths and tales makes perfect sense to me and I’ve compared wood with bone and flesh before here and here. Want to see more pics? They’re on my facebook. My friend who is a carpenter has inspired me to play with wood again, but slowly, carefully, and on my own terms – which so far translates to tiny things made out of yew wood. Fruit and nut woods are still a big no no.
