Attributes: Protection, Family, Occult Knowledge
We are delighted to have secured a fresh supply of Bunyip Fur - ethically sourced of course! As any cryptozoologist knows, bunyips moult their fur each autumn and use it to line their dens and nests - and they can be convinced to part with a small quantity of it if a suitable offering is made. Thus we have acquired in very limited supply some of this precious substance and are pleased to be able to offer it to you.
Bunyips are known for being secretive, mysterious and fiercely protective of their families and their territories. Use this fur in your workings related to protection, familial matters and to delve into occult knowledge.
The bunyip is a large mythical creature from Australian Aboriginal mythology, said to lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes.
The origin of the word bunyip has been traced to the Wemba-Wemba or Wergaia language of Aboriginal people of Victoria, in South-Eastern Australia. But the figure of the bunyip was part of traditional Aboriginal beliefs and stories throughout Australia, while its name varied according to tribal nomenclature. In his 2001 book, writer Robert Holden identified at least nine regional variations of the creature known as the bunyip across Aboriginal Australia. Europeans recorded various written accounts of bunyips in the early and mid-19th century, as they began to settle across the country.
