Dreamcatcher in photographs

You’ve probably already seen a dreamcatcher – a handmade object based on a willow hoop filled with a loose net or web and decorated with feathers. It has become a very popular decoration recently and there are many variations of it.
Originally, it was a talisman of some Native American tribes. The members of these tribes used to hang it near the door so that it could capture nightmares and let through only good dreams.
I am not really an expert in this stuff nor am I particularly interested in Native Americans’ traditions… but I do love how the dreamcatchers look in the photos:
