THE HANDMADE DREAM CATCHER, AN OBJECT STRONG IN SYMBOLS

Dream catchers, originating from the ancient Native American tribes that dominated North America before the arrival of the colonists, were designed with precise instructions:



The circle was to be continuous to represent the cycle of life, with no beginning or end in these ancient cultures
The circle's web was to have a bead in the center, representing the spider weaving its web to capture nightmares
The feathers were essential to filter out good dreams
The beads were a symbol of the good dreams that the feathers brought down to the sleeper
The feathers came from the animal whose characteristics the owner of the dream catcher wanted to attribute to himself. Like strength and truth for the eagle
The feathers also symbolized the bird, whose flight to distant horizons was a parallel with the limitless imagination of dreams.

THE HISTORY OF THE DREAM CATCHER

Several legends tell the story of the creation of the handmade dream catcher, but one of the most famous tells of an old shaman who climbed to the top of a mountain to find wisdom.

Upon reaching the top, he encountered Iktomi, a magical spirit in the form of a spider who is said to have woven a web around a liana ring while teaching the shaman important knowledge about birth, death and dream protection.

According to legend, the spider told the shaman: "If you work with good forces, you will be guided in the right direction and in harmony with nature. If not, it will go in a direction that will cause pain and misfortune. "

Iktomi taught the Native American to use the good energy and dreams received through the dreamcatcher to help his people achieve their goals by listening and paying attention to the visions, dreams, and ideas he conveyed.

The Amerindians were then, over the decades, all aware of the creation of this magical object and used it for centuries to filter dreams.

With the arrival of the colonists, the dream catcher went beyond the borders to decorate the walls of all civilizations.

Then, in the 60's, the hippie movement made the dream catcher a very popular decorative object. This symbol of peace began to be marketed on a large scale. So much so that a law in the United States had to ban dreamcatchers that did not respect the original manufacturing principles. Only genuine dreamcatchers could bear the name.

Nowadays, everyone knows this decorative object symbolizing dreams and often represented in tattoos.
