Artist Notes on Rainbow Crow
On a sunny day
in the depths of winter
the call of the crow
wakes me up to the beauty
and the memory of spring.
When thinking about an animal for this year’s festival,
I happened to be on a walk to a friend’s memorial service.
And I met up with two crows.
And I listened and followed their advice
when they told me to design a crow this year.
They are messengers after all.
Carrion birds like crows and ravens
are often associated with Celtic divinities.
They are shape shifters.
Irish war goddesses like the Morrigan
could change between forms of woman and bird.
This winged crow
is the element of air.
Connected to the celestial realm,
she can fly to the sun, moon, and stars.
The radiating flower tree at centre is her connection to the earth.
Adding the rainbow element, fire, and water
shows us the colour that can emerge
when sunlight shines on the darkness.
