UDUMBARA pottery started in 1994, but ever since I can remember, I have marked all my artworks with “zorro” the Sarvela family cross.
This original was the signature of my ancestor Hermanni Sarvela (1806–1880) but assumedly much older, and it has been used as my father’s family’s symbol. In 2001 graphic artist Eva Louhio (who also made UDUMBARA’s logos) made a mark of mine, this red version of “zorro wrong way around.”.
It is very old and has been watching over the pottery for years. The rooster is from the same farm (Sariola) as my “zorro” mark, from the Sarvijoki village in Jurva South-Ostrobothnia of Finland.
Rooster as a spirit animal
If Rooster is your Animal, you are comfortable and in touch with your fiery side, especially in passion/sexuality.
As the herald of dawn, Rooster also gives you hope and mental keenness. Those who carry Rooster medicine inside rarely find themselves depressed or lacking energy. Rooster fills your aura with enthusiasm and a renewed sense of wittiness.
Rooster spirit draws good luck, prosperity, and overall health to you and your situation or projects.
Finally, as a Totem Animal, Rooster helps you be a potent protector adept at keeping negative energies and evil away with your solar light, which burns brightly in your aura.
As Rooster arches his neck up to the heavens and let’s lose his sacred song, our attention is called to the fact that we are alive to witness the power emanating from such a small and relatively fragile creature. If such a tiny soul believes he is entitled to touch the stars, so can you!
In meditations, the Rooster teaches you self-protection and vigilance. This Spirit Animal also mingles with your auric field to cleanse negativity.
