8.5″ x 11″ pen and ink illustration.
This illustration features a single blackbird, perched on twigs and roots of a tree, with a forgotten lantern shining through the night.
In Celtic lore, the Blackbird is the guide to the spirit world. They were said to lead people to the entrance of the Otherworld where they may begin a journey to spiritual awakening. It was also a sign that you may be too entrenched in your physical life and must take a step back to gain a new self-awareness.
