Cervidae

Cervidae

A gathering of the antlered

CervidaeMore Details

A illustration for the Pathfinders Deck, featuring the (extinct) Irish Elk, Caribou, Red Deer, Fallow Deer and Roe Deer.

The female aspect of the cervidae teaches us unconditional love and gentleness, both for ourselves and others. They are natural wanderers and aid us in our own journeys. The male aspect of this card gives us energy to carry on and do what needs to be done, but at the same time use no more energy than needed to accomplish our goals.

As a negative/reversed aspect it may be warning about trying to reach a goal that is currently out of range and not wanting to give up. There will be better times.

Corvidae

Corvidae

A gathering of the feathered

CorvidaeMore Details

A illustration for the Pathfinders Deck, featuring the Raven, Crow, Hooded Crow, Magpie and Eurasian Jay.

Corvids have long been symbols for war and death and as a symbol they should be treated with care. However, they also symbolise rebirth, and give us the strength needed to part with things we don’t need, big or small. They guide us in the shadows, carry souls from darkness into the light, and help in the honouring of ancestors. They are skilful and cunning, and a great aid when trickery is needed.

As a negative/reversed aspect, corvidae may be warning you that you are becoming to obsessive about something.

WufuMore Details

Celtic styling, meets Chinese symbolism. 'Saol fada chugat' in calligraphy, meaning 'long life to you', and in the dead center is the chinese symbol found in the original wufu illustrations.

The Wu Fu, or five bats of happiness stand for the 5 blessings; Long life, Wealth, Health, Virtue and natural death. The bats are often painted red, the color of joy, but in this case I did the knotwork red.

Wild Boar

Wild Boar

The Wild Boar

Wild BoarMore Details

A illustration for the Pathfinders Deck, featuring the wild boar.

A important power animal to the Celts. It has a close relationship with solar and life giving energies. Orc Triath is the famous legendary boar which goddess Brigit owned. It’s a inspiration bringer in all kinds of arts. The boar is always rooting for the truth, and on it’s own it stands for strength, ferociousness and cunning. It aids in dealing with troubles that will only be solved by a head-on approach.

As a negative/reversed aspect boar shows us we may be losing sight in trying to protect what we value most at the time, and may act more on instinct than reason which could have harmful results for the future. Look before you leap.

Badger will teach you to fight for your rights and spiritual beliefs and guides you through dreams.

Lugh

Lugh

A portrait of Lugh

LughMore Details

A portrait piece of Lugh, a light deity, but in short he's good at everything he does. Let into Tara in a time when only the best artisans were let in. They pretty much had the master in every art&craft type there was, but when Lugh asked them if they had anyone that was a master at ALL crafts they admitted they didn't, and he got in.

He's featured here with the spear that, in the Welsh version of one of his tales, pierces a stone to kill the hunter which had an affair with his wife. And, in the irish version, he himself is killed by it, after his wife finds out a way to kill Lugh and tells her lover.

He's also holding a stone sling, which Lugh used to disable Balor's (his evil grandfather, Champion of the Fomorians) all-destructive eye. In other versions Lugh blinded Balor with a spear made by Goibniu, and thus we return back on the spear.

Knotwork is done with gold inks, and some silver dots.

St. Hubertus Folio

St. Hubertus Folio

A Huntsman's Salute

St. Hubertus FolioMore Details

Top carries the stag, with the cross between it's antlers and a gild-detailed halo. Visually it'll pull the readers eyes downwards from there, directing focus on the calligraphy. For the side-fillers, and in harmony with the vision of the stag to Hubert, a 'tree of life' pattern featuring foliage is depicted.

The four corners feature icons of the hunt, along with gild detailing. One design has the hunting horn and sword, the other features the rifle and the fishing rod.

Top banner, just below the main-crown, features two dogs/hounds pointing and flushing out pheasants. It is a repeated pattern for the side borders, but in the sides design we also see two hounds retrieving a bird.

The half-circles feature falcons with rabbits in their talons, and the bottom border has two fishing figures (one male, one female). The ferret and rabbit corners stand as a reflection of life itself, a dance of life and death.

The original poem, though you could almost call it a oath, is by Oskar von Riesenthal, and was first published in 1880. The translation was done by me into English, and kept the rhyme and meter intact as best as possible;

This is the hunter’s badge of glory,
That he protect and tend his quarry,
Hunt with honour, as is due,
And through the beast to God is true!

Weapons of war are by hate run,
yet love for game fires our gun.
Therefor ponder, your daily bread;
Did your game not suffer dread?

Guard game from man and beast alike,
Make brief its death and sure your strike!
Be outside rough, yet mild inside,
And badge of glory pure abide!

And the original in German;

Waidmannsheil - Oskar von Riesenthal

Das ist des Jägers Ehrenschild,
Daß er beschützt und hegt sein Wild.
Waidmännisch jagt, wie sich’s gehört,
Den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt!

Das Kriegsgeschoß der Haß regiert,
Die Lieb’ zum Wild den Stutzen führt.
Drum denk’ bei Deinem täglich Brot;
Ob auch Dein Wild nicht leidet Noth?

Behüt’s vor Mensch und Thier zumal.
Verkürze ihm die Todesqual!
Sei außen rauh, doch innen mild,
Dann bleibet blank Dein Ehrenschild!
