Folk Customs: Sacred Trees in Belgium 

Today was our last day in Belgium, in Han Sur Lesse, where we was for an art fair. We done something special. Ask help to the sacred Tree of the town an “arbre a clous”
Those trees had magical powers. When you drive a screw or hammer a nail in you transfer your pains and diseases. 

The nail or the screw need to touch the ill body part. For me it’s the heart so i wore it all the day in my bra.


My man wore his screw on the belt in the way to heal his intestines. 

There are so much nails and screws in the trunk, old ones are covered by the tree skin.


We wait now the results on our pains !
