I made this Talisman for my son who is an athlete. He takes this good luck charm to all cycling races, keeping it in his pocket. I taught him how to use it. Within the Talisman, there are three ancient magic symbols.
The main one is the burdock plant. The burdock itself is a symbol of good, happy luck. As the head of the burdock plant has burs, and burs are therefore clingy, it represents good luck clinging to whomever holds the charm. It’s also important to note that the colour of burdock is purple. The sign of burdock is the very stylised outer pattern of both designs.
