RAVENS OF ODIN - Norse Runes Playing Cards & Wisdom Mottos

RAVENS OF ODIN - Norse Runes Playing Cards & Wisdom Mottos

Hey my friends!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ธ Me & Charmie are back! Do you miss us? I do! Just can't wait any second longer to say I MISS YOU SO MUCH! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿฅฐ Hopefully you all are doing extremely well in 2023! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— After these couple years of uncertainty and downside, I think many friends like me may have moved to a new start in 2023 ~ I couldnโ€™t stop questioning myself "Who am I", "What's the meaning now"๐Ÿ™‚ Honestly, I don't have an answer but keep looping this quote in my head ...

'I think, therefore I am'ย 

We doubt; we think, that's what us human and how we survive. In many centuries, science, knowledge, wisdom are the foundation of our civilisation. In pursuit of knowledge and wisdom, people have realised how small and inadequate we are. It is the reason that motivate us to keep learning. ๐Ÿ˜Œ We became humble, learnt to respect each other as well as the nature and the universe. However, this golden rule seems to be fallen apart. We think we are wise enough and not pursuing knowledge anymore, instead, ๐Ÿ˜” we give and take for granted. 10 years passed by, 'knowledge' is everywhere, Google is knowledge; Facebook is knowledge; ChatGPT is knowledge; But are these all real?

'What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.'

Like the famous playwright Bernard Shaw said, what we need to pursuit is not the knowledge itself, it should be the mind and act in pursuit of knowledge. ๐Ÿ˜Š

In Norse mythology, Odin is not an omniscient god; in fact, he sought for "KNOWLEDGE" and "WISDOM" at all time. He sacrificed an eye in the the Well of Urd for Wisdom and even took the initiative to suffer by hanging himself on the tree for 9 days and 9 nights to reveal the true meaning of runes. ๐Ÿฅน This story truly have inspired me how important of the mind of pursuing knowledge even to God.

While reading story of Odin, I have been fascinated by his pair of ravens - Huginn and Muninn ๐Ÿฆ…๐Ÿฆ…! They did not only act as a messenger bringing information and knowledge to Odin, they were part of Odin. Huginn represents Odin's thought and Muninn is the mind of him. ๐Ÿ˜ŽThat's the reason why I made these "Ravens of Odin" decks. In the way of pursuing knowledge and wisdom, I always hope Huginn and Muninn can stay with us, give us courage and wisdom to choose the right path ๐Ÿฅฐ Free our minds from a world of toxic information and false knowledge. ๐Ÿ˜Œ I do believe the theory of attraction, more wishes come with more powerful beliefs and lure the Huginn and Muninn fly to our Earth Midgard. Hope this deck can draw the best and massive attention from us to call for the wisdom and mind - Huginn and Muninn!ย And now ~ I am proud to present a pair of Ravens of Odin decks - 'Huginn Valhalla' and 'Muninn Crystal'! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

So, this is all about this campaign... on the design part ๐Ÿ˜. Spiritually, I have experienced more that I would love to share with you through my design ๐Ÿ˜‡, but just wouldn't fit on these 110 cards.

Deeply thanks to all of you who have showed up to me meanwhile, it was so warm ~ YOU GUYS ARE JUST AMAZING! THANK YOU SO MUCH! ๐Ÿฅฐ And at the same time it was tough not to sharing any words about this campaign with you... ๐Ÿ˜† ย The only "way out" I had was to share with my Charmie cat ๐Ÿฑ, now this is her turn โ€œin zoneโ€ hahahaha I think she is starting to transcend to another level, nothing can bother her anymore! ๐Ÿ˜ย
