In this piece of mine a mourning dove wears the Circle of Protection talisman, which is best used in rituals and spells involving protection of self and home and most effective when worn around the neck.
Two kestrels sit waiting in attack mode under the dove, flanking an inverted pentagram made of acanthus; my own Talisman. Around the birds are dahlias, that symbolize misrepresentation and heather, which means protection from danger in Victorian Flower Language, or Floriography.


This is the namesake painting for my show this Saturday, August 11th from 6-10PM at 
San Francisco's Modern Eden Gallery

403 Francisco St

I could never afford an original piece but this artwork is amazing.
I love it and the message.
Will it be available for prints?
Thank you, Tiffany
