Within the Darkness

 These two images from my archive speak to the notion of wisdom appearing out of darkness. And to a sense of compassion descending into darkness.

The owl, creature of the night, is an ancient symbol of wisdom.

Kshitigarbha, compassionate Bodhisattva, descends into the deepest hells to offer help to those who find themselves in the darkest place.
