Etruscan Votive Statuette    Terracotta    400-300 BC    Worshippers with physical ailments appeased the gods with small terracotta models of the afflicted body part. These models were presented with a prayer, which was either a request for healing, or a post-cure expression of gratitude. Religion and medicine were closely linked in the ancient world.

For 100's of years, the Clootie Well at Munlochy has been a place of pilgrimage for spiritual healing. In Scottish dialect, the “cloot” is a piece of cloth and these are hung by those seeking healing for themselves or others in the trees around a well. The idea is that the cloth, which has been in contact with the afflicted person, is left to disintegrate; as it does, the afflicted are healed of their pain or discomfort.
