These Soul Birds have just landed on Sanna Annukka's lovely new website. They are based on an ancient Russian belief of birds delivering souls to newborn babies and transporting the soul to the afterlife at death.
Wooden birds were carved to keep by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep...aaaaahh! So in addition to looking fab they have a very beautiful story behind them.
Sanna Annukka's birds are handcrafted in England from a sustainable source, only 100 have been produced and each one is numbered by hand.
The birds aren't quite ready to fly the coop and are only available for pre-order. There are two sizes and they start at £75.
