A wicker man is a large wicker statue reportedly used by the ancient Druids for sacrifice by burning it in effigy. The main evidence for this practice is one sentence in Julius Caesar’s Commentary on the Gallic war. In modern times, the Wicker Man is symbolically referenced as a part of some neopagan-themed ceremonies, without the human sacrifice. Effigies of this kind are used as elements in performance art, as display features at rock music festivals, and as thematic material in songs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicker_man

Caring for Pewter: Pewter does not tarnish as readily as silver or silver plate and so does not need constant polishing. Wash with soapy water and dry with a soft cloth.
After platinum, gold and silver, pewter is the fourth-most-precious metal in the world. Used since the Bronze Age. In the past, pewter contained harmful amounts of lead, but today’s pewter contains no lead and is safe to use. Originally made from a combination of lead and tin. At present, pewter is typically 97 percent tin and is alloyed with copper, bismuth and silver, making it safe and suitable for the manufacture of different items.
