Artist's Description

Birds are usually used to represent prophetic knowledge, bloodshed, and skill.

In an omen, birds can be either the message or the messenger.

For example, Morrígan came in the shape of a bird to warn the Brown Bull.

The interpretation of their calls and movements can lead to knowledge of future events.

Birds, especially ravens and crows, usually presage bloodshed and battle,
when they are associated with it, sticking with the theme of prophesy.

Deirdre’s dream of three birds drawing blood foreshadowed death and Lleu Llaw Gyffes was shedding rotting flesh and maggots while in the form of an eagle.

The Irish war goddesses were said to call the ravens down to battle fields to feast on the flesh of the slain

Even normal, modern crows and ravens descend to feed on corpses along the road.
