Swan– The swan holds many deep and sacred meanings to a vast amount of cultures. They represent love, grace, purity, beauty and sincerity.

In Hindu cultures, the swan is known as the Hasma bird and stands as a representation of the breath of the spirit and a divine mind. The swan has also long been revered as a symbol of the Virgin Mary and the love and purity she symbolizes.

The first recognized acknowledgement of the horse in ancient times was in the third millennium B.C. where historians discovered slate tablets in Elam which reference this noble and wild beast. In ancient Celtic culture, Epona, the horse goddess was known for abundance, love and purity. In the Chinese zodiac, the horse stands as a pillar for practicality and love.
