Nott is a moon-carrying, fortune-telling night-time goddess chaperoned by her enchanted companions. In Norse mythology and in very old English pagan traditions, Nótt is the goddess of the night; the personification of the night sky.

Commissioned by Stellar Projects for Nightfall 2016, Frolicked has crafted their own version of Nótt as a spectacular walking puppet sculpture – a moon-carrying, rune-casting, roaming fortune-teller, who enchants her audiences with the lightning in her hair, the starlight on her costume, and the gentle sway of the orb she dutifully carries on her back. Our half-sized, Norse-speaking goddess is accompanied by her English-speaking interpreter, a talking crow, who sits in his own enchanted tree. From the same mythology, crows were considered as messengers, and when the night raven appeared, he was said to be a captured spirit in crow form-hence the ability to communicate with humans.

Nott is not only an unusual and spectacular sight, but she also gives an illustrated fortune as a gift for those who choose to interact with her, giving a tiny hand-drawn glimpse into how the celestial heavens affect our lives on earth.

Perfect for Light Night, Halloween and Bonfire Nights.
