An Achiyalabopa is a mythical bird said to have feathers of all colors and wings as sharp as knives. Not much else is known. Even the pronunciation for its name is still undefined to this day

I've chosen this to be my next tattoo.We'll see how it goes this evening. The #phoenix is not just a #mythicalbird it was actually also referenced in the bible.Its #symbolic of #rebirth #renewal and #eternallife which is what Job referenced when speaking of the chol, or phoenix.Some scholars argue chol is also sand because such a bird is not possible to have existed, but in the context used would not make sense.The phoenix is a great representation of what He can do and renewal of life and spirit when we believe #ibelieve #throughgodallthingsarepossible

'A little bit of kneeling keeps one in good standing'...
.
Hands folded in #garudasana pose.. #garuda the #mythicalbird equated with eagle.. but according to one dictionary it literally means #devourer beacuse #garuda was identified as the #allconsuming #sunsrays

No, he is not eating the pigeon, it happened to appear just as I took the photo. It is hard to take photos without people, so I kept this one.

THE SWAN OF TUONELA // Tuonelan joutsen

Between the world of the living and the realm of the dead - which is known as Tuonela in #FinnishFolklore - flows a river darker than the polar nights 🌌 and which can only be crossed once with no return. By humans that is, as they make their final sail to the afterlife, unlike the sole sacred swan of Tuonela that can travel between the two worlds as they pleases.

The Swan of Tuonela is known from Finland’s national epic #Kalevala (first published 1835) that was collected and written by Elias Lönnrot, who traveled by foot in search of folklore 📜🎶, that was passed on by singing in an 8-syllable poetic measure that is typical for Finnish. The story tells of a red-haired handsome, yet rash, youth called #Lemminkäinen who travels far North to ask the Maiden of the North for her hand in marriage (despite the fact Lemminkäinen is already married 💍). Her mother the Mistress of the North sets three nearly impossible tasks for the suitor, the last of them being killing the Swan of Tuonela.

And as is known in #FinnishMythology, whoever tries to harm the sacred swan falls into doom and so does Lemminkäinen - he falls into the dark swirls of the river of Death losing his imprudent life young. Yet through a series of events having to do with his mother and a bleeding rake, Lemminkäinen is restored to life.

Afternotes
~ the national bird of Finland is Laulujoutsen/Whooper Swan (Cygnys cygnys) and it's a species protected by the law
~ however the swans in the artwork are Kyhmyjoutsen/Mute Swan (Cygnys Olor) which can noticed by looking at the beak
~ the swan below is closer to a traditional depiction of the Swan of Tuonela, as for the one above just flapped it's shiny wings somewhere from my imagination
