Native American Dream Catcher - Large 1
What do dream catchers do? Purpose and Meaning of the Dream Catcher.
Sometimes referred to as “Sacred Hoops”, Ojibwa dream catchers were traditionally used as talismans to protect sleeping people, usually children, from bad dreams and nightmares. Native Americans believe that the night air is filled with dreams, both good and bad. When hung above the bed in a place where the morning sunlight can hit it, the dream catcher attracts and catches all sorts of dreams and thoughts into its webs. Good dreams pass through and gently slide down the feathers to comfort the sleeper below. Bad dreams, however, are caught up in its protective net and destroyed, burned up in the light of day.
Your large dream catcher will be unique and hand-made. This item was lovingly woven from grapevines, and includes leather-wrapped pheasant, partridge, and faux eagle feathers, a ring of red and turquoise stones, and black, silver and turquoise beadwork.
