Symbolism

-------------------


Athena was the greek goddess of war & wisdom (daughter of Zeus)


In Greek mythology, a little owl (Athene Noctua) traditionally represents or accompanies Athena.


She is one of three virgin goddesses; the other two were Hestia and Artemis.


She is goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilisation, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.





Tides (salt water) is linked to the moon, the moon is linked to the owl.


Sodium chloride (salt) has often been used to represent wisdom, e.g in the Bible, salt also came to symbolise purity, perfection, wisdom, hospitality, durability, and fidelity. Romans gave salt and thus wisdom to all newborns. The design features the chemical compound diagram (circles & lines)


Silver is connected to the Moon. You can see the symbol within the design. It is one of the most versatile metals, one of the 3 base metals in Alchemy. It is associated with philosophical traits of intuition, self-reflection and inner wisdom. It is a feminine metal, a symbol of purity and is connected to the goddesses and spirits. Its energies include divination, healing, protection, emotion, love, wisdom, dreams, luck and wealth. It is symbolic of attributes such as vision, clarity, awareness, focus, persistence and subtle strength.




Mercury Associated with the planet of the same name. The alchemists considered it one of the 3 principal substances on Earth, along with salt and sulphur. It is associated with intelligence, perception, communication.

CUSTOM INK | WOTAN |


Custom Tattoo Design


Size; Small. Height 11 cm.






DESIGN INFO


The design is one of 5 small designs, which depict 5 gods within the 5 platonic solids. The other designs include; Thoth, Ouroboros, Samael & Athena




INKY INFO


Wotan was an ancient Germanic sky god.


Wotan was known as Woden or Wotan to the Saxons and later as Odin to the Norse people.


Wotan is often known as ’the raven god’ , as can be seen in the poem ‘Poetic Edda’




Huginn (from Old Norse ‘thought’) and Muninn (from Old Norse ‘memory' or 'mind') are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world (Midgard)


They bring information to Wotan, after he gave them the ability to speak.




Wodan is the god of war & god of victory in battle. (Victory was achieved in battle, when he pointed his spear in favour of one army over the other)




He was also the god of death, hanging & poetry.


In the design you can see that the raven Muninn sits on a poets quill.


The 2 ravens sit on a tetrahedron, associated with the element of fire. Fire can be linked back to death.



The ‘Ansuz’ rune (on the tetrahedron) is associated with communications & poetry. It is is the heathen or ‘old english’ rune for the word ‘God’


The sun wheel symbol above the head of Huginn is also known as ‘Wotan’s eye. It is represented by an equilateral solar cross inside a circle (my version also induces a moon cycle)


Wotan sacrificed one of his eyes in the well of the wise - no sacrifice is too great for wisdom.
