This painting depicts Huginn and Muninn, the two ravens (I made them a two-headed raven here) from Norse mythology who fly around the world everyday and report the events to Odin, the chief god. "Huginn" and "Muninn" mean "Thought" and "Memory", respectively. 

The imagery also contains tarot cards (The Devil and Death) with the original designs that I have treasured for a long time. They belonged to my parents and I always loved using them as a teenager. The crystal ball oracle contains a goat skull, sometimes a symbol for Satanism.

The flowers, narcissus, represent self interest (hence the name) in Floriography (the Victorian language of flowers) and I felt that was rather appropriate with the other Satanic symbols.
