Spirit Boards or Ouija Boards have a long and fascinating history. Although they may be used to communicate with spirits, they are also collected as a decorative work of art.
This design features the artwork Spirit Guide by the fantasy artist Anne Stokes. The mysterious angel clothed in white, with magnificent wings has a mirror image, showing two angels.
The Spirit Board has all the traditional elements – numbers 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 angel wings.
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, giving some of the history and instructions on how to use a Spirit Board, is inside the box.
IMPORTANT The Spirit Board is not a toy – please use it responsibly.
