Animal Spirits Knowledge Cards

To the ancients, all things in nature had sacred or spiritual meaning. The tribal headers knew the animal sprits well, journeying beyond the threshold of ordinary reality to invoke the power of these great beings.

The 48 paintings by Susan Seddon Boulet (American, b. Brazil, 1941-1997) reproduced in this deck resonate with an ethereal energy, speaking in the language of the Soul. Each image is accompanied by a brief description of the animal's power and symbolism in various cultures.
