The first symbol, I have used on this subject is the raven. Also characterized as a symbol of fear and fascination. 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. Never try to harm a raven, they will get back at you. As well, while other feathered friends migrate to warmer places, they stay with us in the cold winter.
In regard to the composition. I was able, to create a sensation of space volume and movement. We also find a mask. kindred to the dead, into an outburst of silence. On the other hand, positive traits: passion, energy, and action. Following the composition in the overall painting, the night colors create dense air.
Additionally, there is a shape in a white tunic like a ghost. Followed by a second entity next to the wooden house, on the left side. Purposely, to create an enigma that comes from my fear of death. Another puzzling bird I have included is the owl, considered a symbol of wisdom, and enlightenment. This bird of the night shows you things that might otherwise remain hidden from you.
For this reason, they stay hours contemplating, to aware others of portending omens, in life. The Celts and Egyptians regarded the owl as a gatekeeper to other realms—particularly the soul of the dead. So be open to seeing things in a whole new way.
