Spirit Boards or Ouija Boards have a long and fascinating history. Although they may be use to communicate with the spirits, they are also collected as decorative works of art.
This design features the artwork ‘Mystic Aura’ by the fantasy artist Anne Stokes. A beautiful fairy gazes out from the picture, a mystic glow surrounds a magical, floating orb. she has purple butterfly wings to match her hair which is decorated with purple roses.
The spirit Board has all the traditional elements – the number 0-9, the alphabet and the words ‘Yes’, ‘No’ and ‘Goodbye’. On the back is a poem, see the picture below to read it. A planchette (used to point) is included and this is decorated with a butterfly.
The board is made from cork and the back and front are illustrated in colour. It measures 30.5cm x 39cm and comes in an illustrated box. An informative leaflet is inside the box, giving instructions on how to us a Spirit board and also some of its history.
IMPORTANT The Spirit Board is not a toy, please use it responsibly.
