Native-Americans in the Southwest tell that Yig, “The Father of Serpents” is abnormally ravenous during the autumn months and that those who are foolish enough to harm his children will be stricken with an awful curse. To protect themselves, talismans were created to ward off this vengeful snake-god.
From Cryptocurium comes “The Talisman of Yig”. This handsome museum style piece comes mounted on red velvet in a 6″ x 8″ shadow box with an aged description tag that reads:
