Owl + mother wisdom


My owl painting is finished and it is a large painting. I love it´s warmth colors and tenderness.
I was looking at my painting, wondering why an owl with a baby?... Mothers and owls have lot´s in common, the wisdom, the intuition, the safe keeping of their babies. 
Motherhood is the act and practice of love and the passing on of knowledge.


A minha pintura da coruja está terminada e é uma tela bem grande. Eu adoro o calor, cores e ternura que estão presentes neste quadro. Dei por mim a pensar na minha pintura, e a perguntar-me porquê uma coruja com um bebê?... e cheguei à conclusão que as mães e corujas têm muito em comum, a sabedoria, a intuição, a proteção para com os seus filhotes. 
Ser mãe é o acto e a prática do amor e da transmissão de conhecimentos.

Owls are sacred keepers of knowledge and children are the future of our society and their mothers are guardians of that future. They pass on their knowledge through symbols, through storytelling, by teaching their values and beliefs, in ceremonies and family celebrations, while dancing and singing songs.
I feel true honored being a "mother owl" with this special role to share my wisdom with my children, but also very grateful for all the knowledge built and carried out by all of my forefathers and ancestors until today.


As corujas são detentores do conhecimento sagrado e crianças são o futuro da sociedade e as suas mães são as guardiãs desse futuro. Elas transmitem o seu conhecimento através de símbolos, quando contam histórias, ensinam valores, nas cerimónias e nas festas de família, em danças e canções.
Sinto-me muito honrada de ser uma "mãe coruja" com este papel especial de partilhar a minha sabedoria com os meus filhos, como também muito grata por todo o conhecimento construído e transmitido por todos os meus antepassados e que chegou até mim aos dias de hoje.
