A traditional and unique symbol is the Eguzkilore, or sunflower in Euskera (the Basque language).
In representing the mystical sun, it is often placed at the front door to frighten away witches and evil spirits, bringing peace and harmony to the home.
It is a perennial plant which grows almost stuck to the ground and emerges in the form of rosette with rows of prickly leaves. It is large like a thistle and in the center of the rosette is the flowers head. The Eguzkilore always keeps her beauty and shape, even when nailed above a baserri (farmhouse) door for protection. It grows on the sunny slopes, fallow grasslands and sides of rocky mountains.
*NOTE: If mailing, at checkout, you must select the EGUZKILORE shipping at $18. If you would like to pick it up in Boise, that can be done at no charge.
