Abe. Almost all the modern mobile phones have got cameras in them. try getting a good one. you can ever upload the pics  you shoot direct to web if you have net connection to your mobile.

I had a good one.

Someone else thought it was a good one too, so she stole it from me.

Celtic triskelion is in there

Ah, I get it now: this is not about the crow figurine, but about the axe, Yes, there is indeed a triskele on one side of the blade:

What I want to know Abramelin... is how you trained that bird in your avatar to do what it's doing...  And if you did train it... :nw:

Wait a sec: this is not a photo, this is a scan. I don't have a camera, so I made scan of the rook, same as i did with the axe.

That's why it looks out of focus.

+++++

EDIT:

Heh, I think I know why you came up with that:

"That is weird: I tried to attach the scan, but the editor said "there is no file to attach, so I uploaded the scan to my Photobucket account.

And then I see the attachment showed up anyway, lol."



+++++++

EDIT:

"One of the biggest skeptics on here"

Maybe I am, but pay a visit to the "Psychic Readings" forum, a thread about "Past life readings".

The guy who 'read me' is kind of scary...

.
.
Ahhh,ok,I did err.
And I don't do readings in there for that reason . I see bad stuff sometimes....I don't like to lie ,or even see some stuff ....so .
I should get a reading . No one ever gets it right . I'm hard to read though .

Miss me?

Well, you're too late now anyway. The guy said I was the last one he wanted to 'read'.

And with a username like yours they are maybe too scared to do it, lol.

Your username is perfectly fine with me, I like the sound of it. But many will associate it with Haiti or New Orleans, if you know what I mean.

About the crow, read this newspaper article: http://www.telegraph...ette-break.html


Corvids use smoke:

And read onwards.

New Orleans really
The Simbi are a Loa ,with many different deities ,but the main Simbi,is Simbi Dlo. Which is really simbi d'leau. Or simbi of the water .
They are one of my devotionals . Marie Laveau of hoodoo fame,had a giant snake named simbi,that allegedly came when she called its name .
She's one of my idols,naturally .So its a play on words for me.

I named one of my cats Simbi.
His personality didnt fit really . He died on me last year ,of kidney failure ,so its also a tribute to him .
I miss his sweet face .

I am much more complicated than some here assume...

Smoking birds ,just wrong...

Why is a smoking crow 'wrong'?

They get a kick out of it, like many humans do.

Simbi... that must be "New Orlean-ish for SimbA, or lion, right?

Domestic cats aren't anything like lions, they are a-social critters.

Mightily wove they
the web of fate,
While Bralund's towns
were trembling all;
And there the golden
threads they wove,
And in the moon's hall
fast they made them.

I want to say 'Viking' (style) but there's not enough animals worked into the swirling lines and, frankly, not enough swirling lines: Viking art is busy. But Viking art is definitely suggested.

Incidentally, Abe, one of those traps we set for non-native 'murrican speakers is that it's "flea" market.

You are suggesting that the weblike drawing on one side of the blade has to do with the three Norns (female). But there are only two humans depicted on the blade, a male and a female.

But yes, the Web of Wyrd is what I suggested earlier, but then still you have the three  Wyrd Sisters (or have I read too much Terry Pratchet??).
