In Finnish folklore, Ajatar (also known as Ajattara or Ajattaro) is an evil female spirit of the forest, “the devil of the woods”. She has many forms and depending on the description, she’s said to be a witch, a ghost, a snake or a dragon. Ajatar spreads diseases and plague and anyone who looks at her becomes sick. It was believed that Ajatar was the reason why people got lost in the woods and her name is probably derived from the Finnish word ajattaa; ‘to lead’, ‘to pursue’.

The Green Man, the vibrant spirit of the wild wood symbolizes new beginnings and rebirth. Its voice reminds us that it is never too late to begin again, to recognize our responsibility to ourselves and nature and create all that we want to see. ladulcievitaclaywork La Dulcie Vita Claywork
