Hey, I Know You!
I had a vision of these entities protecting me in an Ayahuasca ceremony. I had never seen or knew anything about them before. Then one day I stumbled across them on the Novice website, and I couldnt believe my eyes. They look extremely similar to what I saw in my journey. They items were in great condition and are made with excellent craftsmanship. Thank you!
