Artist: M.J. Cullinane
The solitary hermit crow, aged and wise is perched upon a sacred tree in quiet contemplation deep in the woods. He listens to what the tree needs to say as the falling snow lands on the smallest of branches. It is the tree that has provided the crow knowledge and it is a symbol of the unconscious mind. After his time of quiet reflection, he is ready to pass his knowledge to those who are willing and prepared to travel into the thickest part of the woods. In his mouth, he holds a lantern, a symbol of wisdom to light the way. The delicate falling snow is light and provides a cloak hiding the crow from those who are not ready to hear his knowledge. The soft, bright glistening snowflakes represent cleansing and moving in a spiritual direction that will lead to fulfillment with one’s journey.
