The medicine wheel was made with local crystals and rocks with earth, fire, air and water alters. I asked others to come up with an animal for each stone that best represented its position to the alters in the wheel. For example if it is a stone between water and earth to find an animal that possess both of these characteristic. For example; a polar bear who lives both in water and on land. We also included animals from Icelandic folklore and stories.

This medicine wheel was part of a series of SACRED SPACE RITUALS  a workshop for preteens from East Iceland.
