Falling leaves by crysiblu Falling leaves by crysiblu
So according to Pagan law the owl, or more specifically, the White owl
(also known as the "White Goddess"), represents the idea of age, time and knowledge more than any other animal. thus, the pagans believed the White Goddess to be the bringer of Autumn. And it didn't exactly say why they choose a White owl to be their Goddess, but I think the white feathers were more and angelic or godlike, when compared to the normal owl, especially in the light.

So with this in myth in mind, I created my own vision of Magical world where the White Goddess descends into the forest to meet with the Guardian or keeper
of the forest. This union signifies not only the start of Autumn but also the
peaceful union between nature and change of season.

This piece is really beautiful! The details on the dress are amazing but I think that the way the eyes and the eyebrows are painted has nothing to do with the picture. :O_o: But anyway, I really like it, well done! :heart:

An interesting perspective on the old shamanistic ways. Certainly seems more in balance than what a lot of folks I've met over the last few years think! :thumbsup:

Thanks, it is an unusual version of how autumn starts, that's why I choose it. Actually surprised I hadn't heard of the white goddess before, it's an interesting concept to play around with:)
