Norse shamanism. The name “völva” means simply “woman with a staff”. The staff, in Norse also called “gandur” (refer to the English word “wand”), was a symbol of power and, like in this case, control of the supernatural. The bishop’s crozier, the king’s sceptre and the magician’s magic wand are relics from this special kind of symbolism. The Norse word “gandur” means both wand and magic in modern Faroese and Icelandic.

This is NOT Native American!!!! This wonderful photo is a fantasy cosplay, created by a brilliant photographer and a beautiful model. Native Americans, as well as any other superior race or nation, DO NOT have an exclusive right for wearing fur/feathers of killed animals and birds, antlers etc... Ancient humans wore "ethnic" clothing all over the globe without asking permission! So, this image IS NOT OFFENSIVE to anyone!!!!
