Gasping for air?  Feel like you're being "pulled Under"?  Then you need a helping hand (or in this case, a helping spirit).  This piece has been imbued with the spirit of Vodyanoy or a male water spirit.  The Vodyanoy exists in Slavic, Norse, Polish, Czech, and other European Mythologies- the names may change, but the spirit remains the same.  A Vodyanoy is an naked man with a beard and and flowing long hair, covered in algae and black fish scales, and is believed to be responsible for people drowning, dams breaking, and other water related tragedies- if proper tribute isn't paid to him for trespassing in his Realm.  Fishermen often sacrifice a pinch of tobacco into the water and ask for the Vodyanoy to grant them the boon of a fish or whatever the water has to offer- even it was simply protection from the water itself.
<br /><br />
The unique thing about this particular piece is that it substitutes the pinch of tobacco for your tribute and allows you to ask the Vodyanoy to aid you in aspects of your life that may too overwhelming to cope with or that make you feel like you're "drowning"...
