Which one will you choose?
Harry Potters Wand:
Harry Potter’s wand was made of holly, with a phoenix feather core. In numerous ancient and modern historical references, the holly tree, an evergreen, represents life and was deemed a guardian and protection against poison, lightning, and witchcraft. The phoenix feather represents renewal of life, which Harry accomplished on more than one occasion when others thought he should be dead. His wand wood is also the same as his birth month’s wood in the Celtic calendar, which associated holly with courage and a battle between kings.
Harry’s Wand and Lord Voldemort’s wand: Harry Potter: “Professor, when I was in the graveyard, there was a moment when Voldemort’s wand and mine sort of… connected.“
In contrast, Voldemort’s wand was yew and phoenix feather. Yew is associated with some of the oldest legends of Great Britain, for it was revered by the Druids. It is poisonous and is known to kill cattle. The phoenix feather may represent Voldemort’s obsession with preserving his own life; he created Horcruxes so that he may be reborn each time he is killed.
Harry’s Wand of Destiny: During the Battle of Hogwarts, Voldemort found that the Elder Wand, otherwise known as the Deathstick or Wand of Destiny, which he had taken from Dumbledore’s tomb. When Harry disarmed Draco in Malfoy Manor, the Elder Wand’s allegiance shifted to him. Thus, when Voldemort tried to use the killing curse on Harry, the Elder Wand refused to attack him. The curse backfired, defeating the Dark Lord once and for all.
