Animal Totem: Raven


The Raven, like the black stallion, is a great resource to teach us about the great mystery of our life. Have you ever noticed the iridescence sheen on black? If I look real closely at the fine black hairs of my horse's coat I can see the dance of iridescence in the light.

Iridescence is generally known as the property of certain surfaces which appear to change color as the angle of view or the angle of illumination changes. Iridescence is commonly seen in things such as soap bubbles and butterfly wings.

On black, iridescence has a magical quality and according to the animal medicine cards, Raven carries the medicine of magic! the color black is a meataphor for seeking answers and not a black hole of dark negativity. Quite the contrary! Black holds all the energy, answers and color of our creative source.

Today - honor the magic that lives within you! I had a lot of fun creating this piece and it contains many layers and dimensions. Enjoy!
