Beltane, or May Day, is the last fertility festival of spring. It marks the time when winter's journey has ended and summer's begun. Beltane means "fire of Bel" or "bright fire" and is a rapturous and joyful celebration. In days of old, Beltane eve, the Celts would build two large fires, bale fires, lit from the nine different woods sacred to the Druids. This is an invocation to Bel, the Sun God, to bring His blessings and protection. Herds of cattle would be driven between the fires to purify, bring luck and protect them; also to ensure fertility. People would jump through the flames to bring the same for themselves.

This altar tile depicts the bale fire with the names of the nice sacred woods surrounding it. On the back is a line from the full version of the Wiccan Rede, "Nine woods in the cauldron go ...." Included with the tile is a small vial of casting herbs to bring or strengthen love. Toss them into your bale fire or smolder on charcoal. As a bonus, the hinged display easel comes with this set.

The design was hand drawn then transferred to the wood tile where it is set in pyrography. Color is added using watercolor and wood stain. A polycrylic coating was given for protection and shine.

Measurement: approximately 4.5"
