The Raven Spindle Whorl
Spindle whorls were often carved with images of animals, geometrics or other symbolic images. On this spindle whorl the Raven signifies creation and knowledge.
The spindle and its accompanying whorl comprise a simple, elegant tool that has been used for spinning fibers into thread for at least 9,000 years. The spindle itself is a rounded rod, usually wooden, tapering toward each end, for twisting into thread the fibers pulled from the material on the distaff. The whorl is a weight, usually stone or ceramic, that is fitted onto the spindle to increase and maintain the speed of the spin.
