Three White Feathers – Original Cyanotype


This delicate, light-filled Cyanotype is an original one of a kind work of art. Created using the ‘Wet Cyanotype’ method on beautifully textured Arches watercolour paper size 10 x 7 ins. It is unframed. The Cyanotype process was developed by Sir John Herschel in the 1840’s and shortly after used by the pioneering female early photographer Anna Atkins. A method of photography using sunlight without the use of a camera.

White Feathers Symbolism:

In Native American culture, feathers held significant meaning as they represented higher wisdom, peace and the end of disaster and the new beginnings that come after death. It is a sign of purity and a sign of spiritual connection and progression.

In Shamanism, white feathers are used to cleanse the energy of objects and people and are tools that are used to cleanse the aura and the chakras. White feathers represent purity and carry a high vibration that transmutes any negative or unwanted energies back to universal consciousness.

There is a lot of symbolism around the white feather in the Christian faith, and they are often connected to Angelic beings of light. Receiving gifts of white feathers is a sign that your Angels are nearby and giving you soft nudges of encouragement and love. They represent hope, new beginnings, trust, and inner-strength.
