Wile I painted him, I truly admired his splendor and the brilliance of his colours, but native americans suggest that His lesson goes much further and deeper than what is on the surface. He aids communication and reaching higher spiritual energies along with the ability to express ideas with coherence. This is also an opportunity to balance masculine and feminine energies.
Kingfishers were also known as Halcyons in Ancient Greece. Any days of calm and peacefulness are called Halcyon days. Polynesians believed the sacred kingfisher had control over the water and the waves.
