Orthoceras were a cephalopod ancestor to the squid that lived during the Devonian Period, approximately 500 million years ago. Orthoceras were the most advanced invertebrates of their time, capable of bouyancy control by filling or reducing air in the chambers of their shell, and possessing a sophisticated nervous system, eyes, jaws, and even an ink sack like modern day squid.
Sacred feather prayer fans are an ancient tradition that spans many cultures and nations. Sacred prayer fans are used to help dispatch prayers to the heavens, and are considered to hold great healing power.
