Nuragic Medicine Wheel
NURAGIC MEDICINE WHEEL
NURAGIC MEDICINE WHEEL
Inspired by the medicine wheels of other cultures, I created the Nuragic Medicine Wheel © with symbolic connections to animal archetypes of Ancient Sardinia: The Barn Owl, The Sardinian Deer, The Wild Boar, The Bull.
The creation of the sacred space using the Pintadera as the Nuragic Medicine Wheel, the calling of the Island Spirits, four directions, ancestors are the tools of power.
We will get to know the symbolism of four important animals of the Sardinian tradition, through artifacts that we can still admire today in Archaeological Museums.
WHAT DO WE DO?
The Pintadera will become our Medicine Wheel, through it we will know ourselves, our actions, emotions and thoughts that we express in our daily life and the spiritual realm.
What is it the Pintadera?
Sa Pintadera is a circular clay disk with geometric motifs engraved on one facade, converging towards the centre, almost a primitive Mandala, as the Pintadera actually recalls the magnetic Mandala designs of Buddhist and Hindu culture representing the universe, meaning "of round shape” or “disk” referring to the Sun and the Moon. The past of Sardinia is hidden in Sa Pintadera, and there are many hypotheses on the use of these decorative moulds or special stamps that was part of the ancestral ceremonies for the Nuragic people. Leonaro Melis, however, go for a more glorious past in his book Shardana , I Calcolatori del Tempo, reading instead in those mysterious finds a lunar or solar time-marking calendars use. And in fact, some call the Pintadera “s'Arroda de tempu”, The Wheel of time, whose information contains the secret of the day and night rotation. We know that among the ancient societies it was very important determining the dates during the year.
