some paintings from thesis thus far

as i said before my thesis is on animal portrayals is folklore myth and legend so each of these is based on a myth from somewhere in the world.

the deer comes from a shinto legend where the deer is seen as a messanger of the gods.

the owl. as a symbol of knoweledge is greek

the boar is from a celtic belief where the boar is connected to the hunt

the bear is from a germanic belief that the guardian/ wathcer figure in the sky is portrayed as a bear
