Wise White Owl, 2020, charcoal on paper, 24 x 33 cm.
A requested gift for my daughter Olivia’s birthday! Olivia is very connected to nature and the white owl is her animal totem - a symbol of wisdom and discernment. The owl represents the ability to journey into the underworld and bring light into the darkness.. White animals in mythology and mysticism are often considered to be messengers from the gods.
I have placed the owl at an altitude of approximately 2,900 metres, high above Zermatt in Switzerland, in its natural habitat. Olivia’s mother is Swiss and thus her feminine energy is from here!
