Golden Finch & Da Vinci's Madonna Litta

Celtic myth associates the European Goldfinch with the Title "Thornbird"
the story states a Goldfinch plucked a Thorn from Christ's Crown of Thorns, as a result the bird was spattered with blood on its feathers, the feather being a symbol of the Archer/Fletcher also 
used in Ancient Egypt as the counter weight to the judgment of the Heart, 
while Blood/Water mentioned in John is the Alchemy Wine Jar euphemism for the New Life process that is linked to Cana-Canna, Altars & Weddings. 
The Goldfinch appears in several acclaimed paintings including Da Vinci's Madonna Litta.

Australian author  Colleen McCullough hit the light in April 1977 with the publication of her book the Thornbirds. 

Picture wikipedia  Colleen McCullough's  Dead Wood Tree in pinkish soil roots, was Thorn-Birds  omnipresent counteract symbol of Aaron's budded Rod, the pinkish color is in harmony of Thorn-Bird starlet Meggie's coming of age Dress on the downwards stairway entrance to the Adults  party held for Meggie's super rich Aunt, Mary Carson at her ranch near Drogheda. 

The Thor-Bird  Book has a extensive collection of Bible related themes, diligently researched to create a masterpiece that plays on the conscious of our moral existence.

Out of All the names that Colleen had to chose from, the center of the Thorn bird epic was based in the imagery sheep station named Drogheda, located in a isolated part of Australia. Drogheda name is borrowed from a very ancient town in Ireland that sits on the mouth of the river Boyne, the name Drogheda in English means "Bridge of the Ford"  a crossing of the circles of time is associated with  Drogheda, around five miles West of Drogheda on the banks of the  river Boyne is the 5000 year old Megalithic  mound with standing stone columns entrance  that is aligned with the winter solstice, on a clear day from the 19th to the 23rd of December a shaft of light shines thru the top of the doorway illuminating the inside of the passageway, calibrating a scientific time calculator wonder, other time cycles including the 8 year circle of Venus where the planet makes a return to the same spot on the same day, researchers verify the 97 kerb stones around New-grange are time markers to help mark and gauge the Goddess Planet of Love,  hidden from time, New-grange was re-birthed  in 1669 nine years on from the Battles of the Boyne when local landowner Charles Campbell's farm hands raided some stones,  only to stumble upon the secret entrance to the "Brú na Bóinne" Tomb, the English translation gives us "The Palace of the Boyne" or the Biblical themed "Mansion of the Boyne" which leads us to Welsh-Scots  interpretation of Bru meaning Golden Womb, and Scots -French, Boinne gives us the the Pretty or Beautiful fire lady. 

Further insight to this area may be present in the name Boyne, meaning White Cow, many ancient religions of the world pay tribute to the bovine species, Europe continent  itself is  named after the Goddess Europa and is often represented by the White Cow.  

 Picture Wikipedia by Jean Francois de Troy 1679-1752
Half naked Europa with hand on the Horn sits upon a feminine pink sheet, Europa  is abducted by the White Bull which is a embodiment of Zeus/Jupiter, a cupid angel  pulls the flowery halter towards the water crossing, which may suggest a more Lovers angle than sheer lust, the water  itself  we understand is the element  used to wash away sins, both Jesus and John the Baptist, may be with their own guilty  transgressions showed  us they wished to atone for their offences, water immersion is a sign of crossover and a new time line that is often associated with death and recycle of pregnancy, Jean has inserted the Bible related theme of the three Ladies in distress at the foot of the tree-cross, in contrast with Colleen's dead End, Death tree trade mark, Jean shows a Ever green. Thanks to the gift from God the human tree survives, which in turn may give the answer towards Bovine meaning, Bo comes from Old Norse, explanation "to Live" and vine, a plant often with wood stem that grows and when mature overhangs with its fruits. 

The Bull with in ancient times, was regarded as a fertility sign, the Sacrifice of Bulls at the Altar is a recurring theme with in the Bible writings, Exodus  29:36 KJV states....

And you shall offer a BULL Every Day as a Sin Offering for atonement. You Shall Cleanse the Altar when you make atonement for it, and you shall anoint it to sanctify it.

Baptist with Water cleanses our sin, Fire is also associated with passions, something we are reminded
when at the Altar.........Leviticus 6:13 KJV

A Fire shall always be burning on the Altar; It shall Never GO OUT!

The Lord's promise, where ever we have Men we also have Women.

Leviticus 1:4-9 KJV

Leviticus 1:4-9 King James Version (KJV)

4 And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.
5 And he shall kill the bullock before the Lord: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
6 And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces.
7 And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire:
8 And the priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar:
9 But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord.

Modern day Home of Bull sacrifice is Spain, the Matador's task is to kill the Bull symbolically through the Heart  with the sword, called  the estoque, "that cue", from here in a way that arouses curiosity, Scots legal term esto is a word used to plead a alternative set of circumstances, the Matador's other aid is the Red Cape, with in the Bible the Red Cape is the power coat of Jesus considered by some to be related  to the one handed over by Elijah to Elisha, whom he found plowing the field that was pulled by twelve yoke Oxen, the process of the plough is turn over ground so it may be ready to plant new seed, together with the 12 Bovines whom represent the zodiac 365 circle, with the power cape Elisha was now our Earthly representation of new Fertility, for those whom believe that John the Baptist was the reincarnation of Elijah, a number of observers thru the ages consider Elisha, name meaning "My God is Salvation" to be the reincarnation of Jesus?

Picture Wikipedia  "First Dominion" Magdalene Tower found on Drogheda's nearest Hill  summit, Dominican Monks  helped build the structure, the Monks  where once the Guardians to the Tower and near by lands, the name Magdalene means Tower or Castle/Stronghold, today Drogheda's coat of arms is represented by a Castle, the name Mountain or Hill is the name meaning of Aaron, with in ancient thought the Hill is regarded as a sign of pregnancy.    

Today, the other half of the "even" whole of Jesus is ever present at Drogheda with the Love tower dedicated to Mary Magdalene, consecrated on  the Year 1224 by priest Luke Netterville, the date signifies on the Watch zero Hour or Double Hand pointer North, in the year 12-24 people living on both sides of the River Boyne  North and South,  whom had previously been at bitter odds with each other  where united by the influence of skilled peace negotiator Abbot Father Bennett, there is little doubt in  the Tower's blind love name  and Double Top eclipse year date  of building, that forces of divine nature  brought together grudging enemies, people from her Kingdom come's together to honor the "Daughter of Jerusalem" with in the scripture  the "Watch Tower of the Flock"-Herd prophecy is halted at the ford meeting place of Drogheda........  

Micah 4:4-8 King James Version (KJV)

4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.
5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever.
6 In that day, saith the Lord, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;
7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the Lord shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.
8 And thou, O (zero) tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.

With ability to understand and share feelings for others, Collen ignited the empathy agony passions with in our Hearts, with  seemingly endless string of Funerals and the ongoing struggles of Low point Blues,  and the thoughts that gather around the pass-overs and other rock bottom issues most of us have to endure during a life time,  Collen  centers her story line on a couple that grow together and fall in Love, yet the very thing that may help lift us out the Gloom  is fraught & frowned upon due to circumstances  related to  Faith & Oaths, Collen steers us  in to the trap of Hell/Sin  & Doing the right thing, trying to ignore the tender Fire of  Feelings that torch our tormented Soul is the returning theme of Hope when both lovers are still alive,

“There is a legend about a bird which sings only once in it's life, more beautifully than any other creature on the face of the earth. From the moment it leaves it's nest, it searches for a thorn tree, and does not rest until it has found one. Then, it impales it's breast on the longest, sharpest thorn. But as it is dying, it rises above it's own agony to outsing the Lark and the Nightingale. The Thornbird pays it's life for that one song, and the whole world stills to listen, and God in his heaven smiles, as it's best is brought only at the cost of great pain; Driven to the thorn with no knowledge of the dying to come. But when we press the thorn to our breast, we know, we understand.... and still, we do it." ~ Colleen McCullough”

A Golden Finch sits perched on the thigh of Christ, its tail is propped up with the Ribs of Christ, the Rib found in GENESIS in the Bible chapter 2  tells us that the Lord God made a woman from the Rib he had taken out of Man.
The Gold Finch is bind with Passion of Christ & John the Baptist

Picture Wikipedia, Raffaello Sanzio's Madonna Del Cardellino,    Mother Mary, seen sitting on a rock, near a great river, while reading scripture, points to the Rib of John the Baptist, whom is wearing a loose loincloth/skirt type garment, which leads us to Jeremiah ch13

as John cradles the Goldfinch the naked infant Jesus is seen touching the head of the  Finch.

Picture wikipedia  Nest of the Goldfinch with two Eggs is lined paradoxically with the soft seeds of Thistles, the crown of thorns with its Sin related misgivings leads us to, Jeremiah ch 13.........."Because of your great guilt I will scatter you like drifting chaff in the wind, this is your lot, because You have turned away from me,  and put your trust in Falsehood/Baal" (Canaan God of Fertility & War)
"I will pull your skirts up over your face so that your shame might be on view".

The English name finch is a subtle made up word decoy that deflects humiliation, the letter F being the English alphabet's 6th letter, in turn exposes the "six-inch"  Egg fertilizer that gives purpose & reason for a Nest builder, Man-kind caught in a trap, on the road to Hell if he goes Forth and multiply............

"Bells Ring Out the Changes of our Days. They call us to wake, to Pray, to Work, to Arms, to Feast and, in times of crisis To Come Together.
Almost everyone in Britain lives within a sonic Parish.
Anyone Born with in hearing of the Bells of St Mary-le-Bow in Cheapside London has the right to Call themselves COCK-NEY........
Above All, Bells are the sound of Freedom & Peace.
Throughout WWII all of Britain's Bell Towers where stilled,to be rung only in case of Emergency.
They hung in dusty silence, until the day came,when they could ring in Peace"

The Baby Boomers Generation, testify the resilience of the "Finch" Bells.

Picture Wikipedia  German WWII Stahlhelm meaning Steel Hell-Met, one of the iconic images of WWII the outline takes the shape of the Bell-End, the German Army nickname known as the "Jerrys" stems back to Jeremiah's (ch 13) shame degradation, the name Gerry-Jerry itself means
"ruling spear" which leads us to the spear of Longinus, each and every one of us are creations of the Spear of Destiny,  the penetrated Ribs is representative of the "Long-(one)-in-us".
