Prayer Arrows are a native folk art of the Americas. They carried intentions and blessings created by individuals who planted them in special places of power - on mountaintops, in rivers, or other sacred places. The intentions then flowed out into the universe so that these aspirations can be attained.
With her Prayer Arrows, Ann has transformed this ancient art form into a beautiful, new, modern tradition that inspires the individual to embrace his or her aspirations.
In her own life, Ann S Rich has experienced first-hand the gifts that comes from setting positive and loving intentions for herself and others. Her arrows, as art, are in essence the physical representation of powerful and positive intentions. Each arrow is made from strong wood, along with gemstones & beads from around the world, and organic fibers (Earth), bird feathers (Air/Sky), metals (Fire), and shells and stones from the sea (Water) to embody distinct intentions.
Each prayer arrow is custom- made with an intention, bible verse, quote or affirmation wrapped inside the arrow. Each arrow is customized and unique.
