A ‘charivari’ is worn by a hunter as a talismanic amulet to protect him from danger and to appease and calm his intended prey. By wearing the amulet from his belt the hunter assumes the natural attributes of the animal and takes on its success in hunting. Stoats and weasels are deadly, quick and silent killers.
