I ask you all to bow your heads before the oldest entety of all the Masked - the Soul Dancer, keeper of life and death, carrier of souls. They are invisible to the human eye for they are spirits, moving like wind and shadows over the lands. Sometime you can catch a glimps of them, like a sudden shudder over a still lake, a flicker of light in the dark of the forest, a warm breeze in the middle of winter. They are always there, watching, waiting - for seasons to change, years to pass and souls to be released.
When someone dies the Soul Dancer gather the soul of that being in its silver cage. The soul start of as a cocoon but as time pass by it mature and when the time is right it hatch into a beautiful butterfly. And when ready it fly off to get born again - and so the never ending circle of life continue until the end of eternity.


MADE OF: The Soul Dancer is a OOAK sculpture, entirely handmade by me (those scales take raaaather long to make one by one and place :D). She is sculpted in super sculpey and painted with acrylics. It doesnt show that good in the picture but all the dark blue parts has a gold hue so she gleam and sparkle when turning. The cage Ive made in 2 different sizes of silver wire.

Height: 30cm (11,8 inches)


This guys is how I doodle. I wanted to make something "fast" and easy between my bigger projects so yeah... I had lots of fun making this one, she is now my fave amongst the Masked, probably because I love deer/stag creature, antlers and long legs so much! :love: :D

How are you doing? Is life well for you?

Have you ever encountered a particular species of Creature called a Zazeu? It's just because that's the species my Spiritual companion is and he's very secretive. He also happens to personally know Corona and has encountered him a few times. My companion goes by the name Valhulde (a with the two dots over it, beside each other).

Hi there! Im.... doing. XD Life is not well. But then again it hasnt been for an aaaawfully long time. But Im struggling on. ^^

Ive actaully never heard of these Zazeu... or......  now when I say it it DO feel like I know them. O__o Okay maybe this sound totally crazy now but I have to take that back and say yes I know this species, or at least a part of me does, I feel it. I think Corona might have given me my subconsciousness the info! And I must say your companion has a very beautiful name. <3

Thank you, I'm sure he'll thank you for it. If he wants to, i'll ask him to visit you and Corona over where you live, if he knows a range of languages, then he'll know at least some Swedish lol (Apparently his name means 'Obscure vision', in his native language).

I've recently taken in a werewolf pup spirit that was wandering around my house, although I cannot see him, he's rather adorable. I named him Shezieu (I was a beginner spirit keeper when I was younger, so I know a bit about these creatures).
