The hen is associated with feminine energy, knowledge, curiosity, and courage. In the Chinese culture, for example, the totem with hens is a symbol of nobility, as well as physical and moral strength. It is believed that the presence of a hen in human life brings good luck and protection. And instead of taking one for a pet, hanging this painting is a far more elegant and durable way to have a hen at your place. Wheat classes are also present in the painting as the embodiment of the feminine beginning and energy. 

The hen is standing on the Moon. Why the Moon? Well, because the Moon is a widespread cosmic symbol, enriching the meaning of various aspects of existence. We decided to combine this iconic image with another strong energy source, namely the traditional Chiprovtsi motif in carpet weaving. Kanatitsa is perhaps one of the most popular symbols and motifs used in carpet weaving, especially in the carpets from Chiprovtsi and Kotel (the main regions where carpet weaving takes place in Bulgaria).

This symbol is pretty old and world spread but it can be traced back to the Balkans, where the oldest examples have been found. It is used as a symbol for borders, fences, guardians. That is why the belief is preserved that it performs an apotropaic (protective) function and was used by our ancestors as a way of repelling evil and dark forces.

Therefore, we find it extremely favorable both on energy and aesthetic level to have such symbols with coding for prosperity, well-being, health, harmony, and hope at home. The two paintings are designed to go together, inseparable as the Sun and the Moon, the man, and the woman, the career growth, and the comfort of family life.
