Crow Carrying Sun Medicine Symbolic Folk Art
"Crow Carrying Sun Medicine" is the second painting in the trio "Healing in the Ancient Garden".
Crow Carrying Sun Medicine Original Painting by Jeanne Fry
This painting focuses on the Crow himself, who is depicted here as the messenger, the carrier, bringing the sun's medicine for those in the garden who may be missing it. Maybe they are small and not able to catch the sun on their own, maybe they are blocked by other growth around them, but never the less....Crow realizes what they need and assists in the delivery of the sun's medicine to them.
The symbiotic nature of this ancient garden is a reminder of how connected life is and how we all affect one another. In my readings, was inspired by Lynn Margulis and Dorion Sagan, "Life does not take over the globe by combat, but by networking."
This original painting was sold, but prints are available here in our Artfire Studio
