The Protector

alexandria noel stag illustration

11″ x 14″ pen and ink illustration on medium weight paper.

This illustration features a large elk head, with antlers of filigree and an Algiz rune on his snout to symbolize strength, protection, a higher self, and the divine. He is struck by three arrows, each representing the three stages of life—birth, death, and rebirth—and the strifes we must overcome. The raven perched on his antler stands for knowledge grace.
