Cast bronze Celtic ritual sickle with a beautiful dark green patina.
The Roman author Pliny the Elder described the Celtic ritual gathering
of mistletoe which was found growing on an oak tree. A Druid, dressed
in white, cut the mistletoe using a sickle and allowed it to fall on
to a white piece of cloth. This ritual took place on the 6th night
after the new moon. From this account, we see that the Druids held
some importance to the color white, and used a sickle. We prefer white
robes for our clergy in ritual and have adopted the sickle for our
use. We also set aside the 6th night of the moon for our Mistletoe
Hallstatt Culture (about 800 to 475BC)
