Description

Listen.
I guard the womb.
Bringer of life
and order.
Create with me
and be healed.

This handmade Story Goddess carries the energy of Anput, the little-known Egyptian underworld goddess, wife of Anubis. Known as the Bringer of Life and Order, she is portrayed as having the head of a jackal or wearing a jackal standard. Our Anput was created after a powerful personal experience with her (scroll down in the description to read the whole story). She was our first Story Goddess with an animal head. She is cast in resin and colored with a black mica pigment with silver sparkles (or a purple mica pigment). Her silver-tone belt carries a malachite bead and a double horn charm that crosses cultural boundaries into the symbolism of Minoan Goddesses and Cretan temples, which often use double horns as a goddess symbol. The double horns also connect to the moon and also to the womb, which resembles the double horns of the uterus with its fallopian tubes and ovaries. (Double horns are also associated with Hathor, of Egypt.) The belt is removable and can be interchanged with any of the other belts in our Story Goddess collection.

This goddess is meant to be a companion goddess, to travel with you, to share your experiences and stories, and to bless your space--your desk, your office, your pocket, with her power and essence. She is about three inches tall and very sturdy--she can get wet or be dropped without being damaged.

Notes:

Each figure is handmade and has small imperfections due to handcrafting such as trim marks, seams, fingerprints, or bubbles that make them unique.

Sculptures are each finished for you when you order and demand is high. We usually ship within 2-3 days of order, but may occasionally need 5 days before shipping.

Guardian of the Womb: Personal Story

I experienced a second trimester miscarriage-birth in 2009 that was a powerfully transformative experience. It was followed by a second miscarriage early in 2010 that was a terrible blow, bringing me into a very dark and distressed place. Following the second loss, I started reading a really wonderful book called Wild Feminine by Tami Lynn Kent. It contains many visualization exercises centered around healing our pelvic wounds and connecting with our “pelvic bowl.” One exercise was about visualizing the guardian of the womb. As I read the phrase that night in bed, I immediately experienced a strong, clear image of a black, stone goddess figure with upraised arms and a stylized jackal head. At first, I was saddened by the image, feeling that my subconscious had identified my uterus with Anubis, the God of Death, rather than a place of life and birth. I felt shaken by this spontaneous vision and felt like my body was perhaps telling me I would never have another living baby. However, I also intuitively felt like the figure I had seen was not, itself, threatening, but was actually serene and beautiful....AND, female.

After thinking about the jackal goddess for several days, I did a little internet research, wondering if there was a female Anubis or Goddess Anubis, since the “womb guardian” with the jackal head that I had seen was distinctly a female figure. I then discovered that apparently Anubis had a wife, not well known or much explored, named Anput. As I read about her, my heart eased and the message from my body about my womb’s guardian became a deeply meaningful message of comfort rather than despair—Anput was referred to as, “Guide and Guardian. A Bringer of Life and Order.” This felt like a message to me from the goddess herself and it meant a lot to me. I did in fact conceive my daughter two months later and gave birth to her with wild, sweet relief in my living room in January of 2011.

FAQs

As each of our items is handmade, we do not accept wholesale orders at this time.

Depending on our current order volume, we will occasionally be able to offer a one-time small quantity discount for a women's circle, retreat, or event.
We happily accept customization requests in terms of color and charm. We do not do custom sculpts or size alterations.
We receive a high number of conversations (convos) and I reply to them in "batches" according to my available time. Please allow at least 24-36 hours for a reply to your convo. I don't always answer at night or on weekends, as a person (this person anyway!) needs a little bit of down time. :)
Our usual shipping days are T, W, F, and S. We have a high order volume (thanks to all you awesome people!) and since our items are all handmade we often finish items as the orders are received. We strive to ship within 3 days of order date, but during busy seasons, it may be 5-7 days before your order ships, so please keep this in mind when placing orders. Orders are fulfilled both in order of date received AND in complexity (i.e. a small, simple order will ship much more quickly than an order of ten pieces). We are unable to promise delivery by a specific day, since after the item leaves our hands, it is up to the postal service when it actually arrives! If you need fast(er) shipping, make sure to choose Priority Mail at checkout.
