My take on The Hierophant tarot card, usually the 5th card in the Major Arcana (hence the five bees). In my version, the owl's wisdom spreads organically, through willful learning, rather than via the subservience suggested in the card's classical depiction. The hummingbirds have possession of the Keys of Life, which are adorned with the Kabbalah Tree of Life pattern. Can you spot the symbolism?
