About Superstitions and birds Jan. 16, 2011


Birds and Superstitions

My Oil on canvas of Albatross
is open for bidding..







In China Bats are a good Omen, For a long time they have had a connection with witches. They were written about by Poet Virgil and he established the
lot by identifying them as winged monsters.
I had a Bat in a jar for sience class as a kid and they smell awfull.
My Mama was freaking out.



















The old saying is as long as the RAVINS
nest on London Tower England will never FALL










Also about Ravins ;;Circling Ravins predict
a message from a far. Another saying is they
hang around a house if an person
is very ill, to steal their soul.

They got mine 8 years ago I guess,
They are all over here and I feed them.
In fact they know me and are watching
to see me through bread to them.
Here within a second.








Ravens are Beautiful black and blue, They croak alot

they are pretty noisy birds.






























It also says if the Robin stays close to your house it will be a harsh winter, WELL yesterday they were in the tree close to my house and the Hospital windows too.



















Now about Owls, it is said the hoot of an owl means a witch is approaching.




Also in England they had a saying that owls
and witches could become one
or the other,

The Supersition on this Eurasian Eagle Owl








Romans believed that a sneeze would release your soul, That's why we say "God Bless you."

Oh Oh! my right palm is itchy ,, Must be going to get some money..

Now I don't walk under a ladder, Why take the chance.
.
Owls are Predators.




AlBATROSS

The Albatross wing span is up to eleven feet long.
Weight about 22 pounds and can drink salt water.
They are carnivore. Live on schools of fish and squid.
That's why they follow the ships. Hoping for food.
They mate forever. Can live to Fifty years old.
Most Sailors think they are lucky.









Should you shoot
or kill one you. You will be cursed and doomed.
I will hate you and hit you
in the head or eyes and spit on you.
I love these birds. More about albatross
Pirates use to sell them. People would
kill them for the feathers. Eskimo's ate them.




Maybe only on Thanksgiving. Just kidding.
Bless these Beautiful gifts from GOD.

That is why I painted this Albatross.
It is for sale if anyone is interested, oil on canvas.
Adieu, God Bless
Yvonne
