This staff is hand made by Wally and tells the emergence story, the origin of all life, through the four planes of existence. These staffs are truly one of a kind, no two are alike. NOT AS PICTURED, but close. It takes Wally about a week to make one staff. Each staff has designs and colors that tell the story but there are some variations. The staff pictured is basic example of what all the staffs look like. The staff also comes with a write up of the emergence story, on high-quality parchment like paper suitable for framing.
