Poppets and Magical Dolls – A Talk by Lucya Starza
Poppets are dolls used for sympathetic magic, and can be designed in the likeness of individuals to represent them in spells to help, heal or harm.
The word poppet comes from the Middle Ages in England, originally meaning a small doll or child or an instrument of witchcraft. It is still in use today as a name of endearment as well as for a magical doll.
Lucya Starza, witch and author of Pagan Portals – Poppets and Magical Dolls, Pagan Portals – Candle Magic, and Pagan Portals – Scrying will be talking about the history of effigies in both healing and cursing as well as how to make them.
