Term: Fith-Faith

A small image of someone made in either wax or clay. It is used in spellcasting and other forms of magick. The fifth-faith is similar in many ways to the so-called voodoo doll. Traditionally pins, needles, or nails are driven into the image to direct magickal energy or personal willpower into it so as to manifest a desired effect. Such an act is believed to be transferred to the person represented by the image of the fifth-faith.
