IN THE ARCHIVES - PIED DE GRUE / THE FOOT OF THE CRANE

 

WE’RE DIGGING INTO THE ARCHIVES + BRINGING BACK SOME OF OUR FAVES!  WE’VE DEFINITELY GOT AN OBSESSION WITH SYMBOLISM + HAVE SUCH A LOVE FOR THIS CRANE + IT’S STORY.  HERE’S A LITTLE PEEK INTO THE MESSAGE THE CRANE DELIVERS TO US….

THE FOOT OF THE CRANE [PIED DE GRUE]

THE CRANE IS SYMBOLIC OF GOOD FORTUNE, HEALING + HAPPINESS + IS ALSO ASSOCIATED WITH ALERTNESS.

LEGEND TELLS THAT THE CRANE IS THE MOST LOYAL OF THE FEATHERED ONES + IS MEGA PROTECTIVE OF IT’S FLOCK, THE BIRDS WOULD TAKE TURNS PERCHING ON ONE FOOT + HOLD A STONE IN IT’S OPPOSITE, WHILE WATCHING OVER ITS SLEEPING FLOCK.  IF THIS SUPERVISING CRANE FELL ASLEEP OR SOMETHING DISTRACTED IT, CAUSING IT TO DROP THE STONE, IT’S COMPANIONS WOULD BE ALERTED. 
YOUR SQUAD, YOUR FLOCK, YOUR PACK.
WHATEVER WAY YOU SLICE IT, ITS IMPORTANT TO FIND YOURSELF A CREW THAT WILL PROTECT YOU + REMIND YOU THAT YOU DON’T NEED TO CARRY ALL THAT WEIGHT ALONE.
