Sacred Art





I made this painting in the year 2012 after being told by my helping spirits that I am an Apprentice of the Wind.

Crow is one of my power animals. When I undertake shamanic journeys (soul flight) I often fly with crows. For that reason I have painted a segment of this vision on my shamanic drum.

I find it very interesting that the Hebrew word ruach means wind but also breath and spirit.

As a teacher of Norse Shamanism and Seidr I have a particular affinity with the North Wind.

Being an Apprentice of the Wind is a journey, always bringing me new leads and new discoveries.

It was hard to say goodby to this painting when it sold. It lives in Vienna today.
