Artist Notes for Huron Heron

The element of air in this Celtic art series

is often represented by a long-necked bird

seen taking and giving flight

to the dancer, house, horse, turtle, bear, stag, hare, dragon…

 

This heron is friend not family to the crane,

carrying a story from Romano Celtic imagery in 1st c. AD

of 3 cranes, a bull and willow as the Tree of Life

being chopped by a wood cutter

perhaps as an allegory of winter.

The cranes become the soul of the tree

released after its death.

 

This heron is waiting.

Standing in the watery depths,

with feet like the roots of the willow

its Tree of Life companion at the river’s edge

steadfast to the demands

of the ever changing, flowing water.

 

This heron is waiting

and fishing for the days when we can gather

with our music, dance, storytelling, and artful craft

to swallow this festival whole once again.
