A robin art print to treasure by Molly Ellis, The Wild Felter.
Robin Folklore is rich and deeply ingrained in Irish society. The old stories of how the robin got his red coat at Christmas, norse tales linking the robin with Thor and our own folklore as a spirit messenger.
Logic tells us that these beautiful birds follow us in the garden picking up tidbits, spotting disturbed earth for lunch. however our hearts can find solace as a messenger of some sort. I grew up with the saying “a robin in the house is a death in the family” Others have told of a robin visitor after the passing of a parent, acting as a comfort in those grief stricken days. I like to embrace this and many tales of our feathered friends. This piece reflects this greatly playing with the light and shadows on his beautiful coat.
