Odelia is one of
the 13 witches that make up the Order of Moonhallow. Every 7
years, the Order of Moonhallow gathers to perform the ancient rite
that results in the creation of their new minions, the Wicked
Weeds. 12 of the witches must provide one of the ingredients for
the spell. The 13th witch combines them all as she chants the
ancient words of Sam Hane - the oldest member of the Pumpkin
the first item required -- Grave Dust -- under the watchful eye of
the menacing waning moon. You see her here by the old iron gate
next to the tombstones of those long forgotten. A few bats swoop
around a creepy old tree. Crisp autumn leaves crunch under her
feet as a foreboding wind rattles through the tree branches. A
perfectly wicked scene!
This Halloween vignette
is the first in the Order of Moonhallow series by Jan Pierce. It will come to you signed, dated and numbered.
Odelia's face has
been hand sculpted and hand painted. It is framed by natural curls
of white wool. Her body and hat have been made of fabric that has
been hardened and grunged. Her cloak is also made of fabric that
has been given a prim treatment. She carries a hand carved walking
stick, and a hand crafted primitive bag to hold her grave
Tombstones made of hardened fabric pop up from a hand sculpted
base. All have been grungied for that mossy look found on
really old headstones.
The creepy freestanding tree has been hand crafted from grapevines
and clay. Its hand sculpted face peeks from behind the tombstones.
A tin moon has been hand painted with a sinister smile and
attached to a rusty iron fence. 3 hand made bats attached to
coiled wire wiggle in the breeze.
The wooden base has been given 4 old wood knobs as feet. It has
been painted with our prim spice mix for a spooky look.
A sepia toned hang tag has been attached. It shows this scene, and
tells Odelia's story. It also includes the Wicked Weeds poem that
can be found here ---> Wicked
All of the pieces
in this large scene are removable and can be displayed separately
if you desire - it is easier and less expensive to ship this way!
