The Gods of Macumba
This piece is one that was sent to us from a customer that has been shopping with us for years. There is nothing super out of the ordinary as far as the means by which we obtained it. In fact, it really was a simple as what I just told you. A customer of ours sent it to us. Now the fact that this customer just so happens to be a shaman for a tribe who still practice the "old way," might just be your answer. I'm fairly certain that these days the government is on an agenda to shove electronics down everybody's throats, so that way they lose touch-- the lose site-- of the true meaning of life. The rawness that can be found in nature and the magic that can found hidden in the stars. It's all just pre-programmed for humans to enjoy, but the government has used it against us and is constantly trying to pollute our airwaves with junk an garbage we don't need. I'm guilty of enjoying these devices, but I also am very aware of the magic that still abounds. This is what I mean when I say that the tribe still practices the "old way." Yes, they may use technology from time to time, but they still adhere to the same old practices that were passed down by their fathers and their fathers before them.
This piece was crafted by a shaman and practices the religion known as Macumba. This religion is still practiced by a large number of Brazilians an it involves the possession of worshipers by their gods in a process that largely resembles those of Voodoo ceremonies. Either way, this piece was created during a Macumba ritual. This piece invokes the presence of whatever god you choose to call upon. It doesn't matter whether you are summoning a Voodoo god, a Norse god, or an Egyptian god. It summons this god and invites them to share your body. Through this experiences you will gain the magical powers and knowledge of whatever god it is you choose to summon. For instance, maybe you call upon Aphrodite because you want beauty and true love. Maybe you will call upon Anubis to teach his ways of Necromancy. Perhaps you will call upon Hermes to teach his way of Hermetic Healing, or you could call upon Isis the mother goddess so she can teach you the trade of creation. Whichever goddess you choose to conjure, they will share your body and you will gain their powers. The best part is that you can use this piece over and over again so summon different gods and goddesses to gain all the powers you have ever wanted. Pretty incredible if you ask me.
This piece is real sterling and the stone is macumba.
