NIGHT WATCHERS

Night Watchers/Enigmatic birds turned as symbols in the arts, Fear, and fascination is their trade.

While other birds migrate to warmer places, they stay with us in the cold winter.

Contrary to crows, ravens make different sounds.

The most commonly heard is the classic gurgling croak, which sounds as if it is coming from the back of their throat.

Objective Art

Never try to harm a raven, they will get back at you.

NIGHT WATCHERS DESCRIPTION

On the night Watchers, I was able to create a sensation of space volume and movement.
Objects turned to symbols: the Mask relates to the dead, also an outburst of anger and danger. Positive traits: passion, energy, and action.

In the painting, the night colors create dense air.
There are two figures besides the birds,

the first one is an enigmatic shape in a white tunic like a ghost, and the second I placed it next to the paint’s wooden house located on the left side.
My purpose in creating Fear and hope comes from my Fear of death.

The fact that scare me the most is to be off guard, which means when seeing entities visually, we get used and end to be a surprise.

Another enigmatic bird I have included is the owl, a symbol of wisdom, and enlightenment.

An owl will show you things that might otherwise remain hidden to you. So be open to seeing things in a whole new way.

NIGHT WATCHERS

They stay hours contemplating, to aware others from portending omens, in life.

Waiting very pensively remains hours considering to warn others from foreshadowing omens, in life.

The Celts and Egyptians regarded the owl as a gatekeeper to other realms—particularly the soul of the dead. 

They stay hours contemplating, to aware others from portending omens, in life.

NIGHT WATCHERS

Of all the creatures who have honored me with their inner-symbolic-workings…

The crow/raven has been the most intriguing, dark, mysterious, and laughably evasive with her wisdom.

Crow symbolism is the best test! At least in my opinion.

Night Watchers

These birds are jokers.
 They love a good prank. At least, that’s what I’ve learned from them.
If I were to pin down a Jungian archetype for these birds, I would pick the role of “trickster.”
If you know anything about folklore as historical relevance and human morality…you could easily pick out the part of the trickster in the collective human consciousness.
It’s that crow who pulls the rug from beneath our feet. It’s that well-meaning, but a mischievous character who orchestrates an action that reaps dark consequences.
Of course, these grim consequences lead to lighter epiphanies, and that’s the beauty of hoody-chicanery (as in “hoody crow”).
Without the tricky crow, we cannot have happiness. It’s just the way of fairy-tale balances.
Part of crow symbolism deals with memory-keeping.
There is a significant symbolic point here.
Many cultures believe crows hold memories of ancient worlds, ancient ways of living, and beauty secrets.
I know the Druids strained to understand the language of crows/ravens to decode those old mysteries of a higher wisdom.
I don’t think the crow was ever willing to share those secrets or share the “Rosetta stone” to their unique language. Stubborn, willful, and fiercely proud of their wisdom…
The crow keeps their mysteries in their tombs of knowing. Within those tombs,
They LOVE being secretive, mysterious, and get joy in withholding their occult knowings from humankind.
I suppose they’re like a Rubik’s Cube. Those who can twist their complexity into order may have the gift of wisdom.
Otherwise, I rather think the crow says: “f*ck you.” Sorry for the hint of profanity, but the crows that who to me aren’t sad to spout it – so there you have it.
