The Corizon

  • The Corizon

The Corizon (meaning heart) is a house blessing originating from Mexico, where it is hung in the home to bring protection. Corndolly house blessings are probably the oldest of traditional designs. They were made to provide a home for the wheat spirit after the harvest, and were kept for the year in the home and so became associated with safety and protection. They were often placed near the hearth so the spirit's power could reach the entire household.

The piece is approx. 30cm x 20cm and is made from 22 stems of golden 'Maris Widgeon' wheat.
