Burncoose Stang

After our trip to the Museum of Witchcraft, I’m seeing signs of magic everywhere.

A stang, in its most basic form is simply a forked stick set with its long end into the ground. It acts as an axis on which magic can turn, and as a pole that can be “ridden” by the shaman or witch into different realms. Its forks represent the horns of the Witch Lord. [via]
