An informative tag (supplied) states;

"The American Indian medicine bag was always carried by the medicine man. The Medicine Man was the next most important member of the tribe after the chief, he was responsible for the healing of the sick and injured, predicting the future and driving away evil spirits.

Each of the contents of the bag has a specific purpose and their meaning is symbolised by the charm. The cloth was used as a symbol of healing, the stones characterize strength-the type of stone selected was based on both the type of the illness and the position of the member within the tribe, the turquoise blue is the traditional stone of the indian. the stick was used to drive away the evil spirits, the seeds symbolize the seeds of life and were used for fertility, growth and longevity.  The feather is the symbol of free spirit.

With the right mix, the medicine man could not only achieve miraculous healing, but could also bring about an important balance and harmony in life.

Try selecting the right mix to bring a balance to your life.  Other charms may be added to achieve the ultimate harmony"

secret box 083 open rszd 88dpi.jpg (85529 bytes)  Beautifully crafted Secret lock, key-less boxes
An Excellent Gift!

Very well made by by Aspiration in India, these boxes can only be opened by those who know the secret (an easily-removed sticker explains how).  The hinges and lock fittings are both in brass.  Hinges are discretely positioned at the back, and the lock fittings are internal and out of sight
New stock just arrived - Our secret boxes are in stock and ready for immediate despatch
These high quality boxes are lovingly made and beautifully finished.  The wood used is sustainably-sourced sheesham wood from India.
Shesham wood is part of the rosewood family. It is durable and fast-growing, reaching maturity in 15-20 years (compared to 80-90 years for hardwoods like teak, and 7-10 years for soft woods).
These make excellent gifts for men or women.  The natural but simple beauty of the wood shines through.  They are great for keeping valuable little bits and bobs safely and tidily out of the way
The rich grain of the wood will always vary from one box to the next, so no two boxes will be exactly the same.  This uniqueness enhances the beauty of each piece.
