The Baku is a mythological creature said to devour nightmares, If a child wakes up from a bad dream and calls his name three times it is said that he will appear and devour the dream allowing them to return to a peaceful sleep!
It's still common to see a Baku talisman beside the bedside of Japanese children to this day.
Hopefully this little brooch will help to ward off any of your unwanted dreams too!
This brooch features a selection of handcast swirled acrylics.
