Corvidae by Illahie Corvidae by Illahie
The Corvidae card for the incredible pathfinders deck. The card info in regards to the deck will be added later on.

Corvidae
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.


Pathfinder Deck info (from the website);
Pathfinders is a unique deck that celebrates the animal kingdom.

Animals have come to mean a lot in the lives of humans, even though we hardly think about it. We use their names everyday for things like cars and music lyrics to sports team mascots. Animals have become symbols we look to for powerful attributes. These Totems have the ability to enhanse our lives.

This deck takes a look at 100 animals all over the Earth, great and small, and their unique, special qualities that we can call on to further explore ourselves.

Using this deck, you can find ways to enrich your daily life as well as to learn more about the animals portrayed.

I like your style on this. Corvids are some of my favorite birds. Your rendering of their color patterns (or lack thereof!) is spot-on and quite lovely. The celtic symbol fits right in - and is certainly shiny enough to interest even the most jaded magpie. :)

I really like the composition, the way that the knot leads you out to seeing each of the corvids. The background is nice too, I'm fond of washes like that

::Flails in glee:: ooooh, that is so darn pretty... The mottled greens and blues in the background give it an almost jeweled appearance, which, frankly,suits corvids well.
