Navajo dream catcher
Dream catcher or dreamcatcher - "Dreamcatcher" in English - made in the respect of tradition with leather, beads and feathers, by a Navajo artist. Diameter 8cm. US origin.
A heritage of the Ojibwe nation, the dream catcher, or "dreamcatcher", is made up of a hoop, mainly made of willow, a network of threads in the shape of a spider's web with a hole in the center and a few decorations, such as feathers or beads. Used to guarantee a good sleep, the object is supposed to act by filtering the nightmares sent by the spirits to let only the dreams pass. Originally, the dreamcatcher was reserved for children.
