44: The Volvas
“The Völvas” – were the female shaman in the Viking age and very much part of Norse Mythology. The word Volvas means wand carrier or carrier of a magic staff. As part of this sculpture I have incorporated the staff and bags in which herbs were carried.
“The Völvas” is one of the works from my two month residency at the Fish Factory, Creative Centre, a multi-disciplinary art Residency in Stöðvarfjörður, Iceland.
