Description

SIGNED ORIGINAL ARTWORK by RAVENARI

Striped Skunk (Mephitis mephitis) as Totem:

'When most people think of me, they think of my stripes and my ability to deter people immediately, but I am so much more than this. Not only am I one of the best beings at maintaining my boundaries, I am also soft and sweet if you get to know me. I understand the secrets in the woodland and forests, and I know the safe places to go when you are too tired to be strident. I know how to signal my strengths to others while sheltering my weaknesses, and I will protect you and teach you to protect yourself, but I will also teach you to preserve your softness, your sweetness, your secrets in the undergrowth.'

This totem animal illustration is designed to invoke a sense of balance and blessing within your life or that of a loved one, and act as an intermediary between yourself and the totem animal itself. Can be used practically for meditation and visualisation purposes, or simply as a beautiful original addition to your home.

*

This piece is lovingly crafted on sturdy bend and damage-resistant illustrator's board, with watercolour pencil, pencil, water-fast fineliner, and acrylic and iridescent paint.

This is unframed, and comes safely packaged via Insured postage, except to Australia and Canada, where it will be sent Registered.

Measuring 18.5 x 20.5cm (or 7.4 x 8 in). Includes an approximate half-centimetre border around the image to assist in framing.

Happy dreaming,
~ Ravenari.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Payment is accepted via Etsy Payments. Payment must be made within seven days.

Returns & exchanges

Artwork will arrived safely wrapped and cannot be refunded or returned just because you do not like it, or have changed your mind about the design. If you are purchasing a gift and are unsure if your companion will like it, consider purchasing a commission slot instead; as gifts cannot be exchanged.

A photo (or photos) and a scan are shown in the cases of artwork to indicate the different ways it can appear under different lighting schemes. You may request additional photos at any time of the illustration in different lighting (just convo me).

I do not take responsibility for loss or damage in transit unless the item is sent by insured post. If you purchase an item and it is damaged twice in transit to your address, I will request a different address in future, or refuse to send to you in the future.

Shipping policies

Shipping rates are listed per piece.

Please read the information on each listing thoroughly. Artwork is sent via tracked post, except within Australia and Canada, where it is sent Registered. If you wish for additional protection in postage (such as insurance), please contact me via Etsy Conversation so we can discuss it.

All artwork ships from Western Australia within 1-3 business days, and so standard transit times overseas tend to be 1.5 to 3 weeks. Keep this in mind when purchasing commissions that are intended as gifts. If you need expedited delivery, please let me know as soon as possible so I can arrange a quote and get a piece off to you as soon as possible.

All artwork is sent safely packaged in bubblewrap post-paks, with an additional piece of thick board or corflute to discourage all bending, wrapped in a plastic sheet that is taped to prevent weather damage. Often pieces of artwork come with little extras! Large pieces are sent safely flat-packed to prevent rolling, in boxes packed with scrunched newspaper. Small (up to A3) limited edition prints are sent flat-packed.

Commissions

(CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE - Convo if you're interested).

I offer varying commission slots in the ‘commissions’ section in the side menu. If you want something different in size or subject or medium (such as pastels), please convo me to check my availability and get a direct quote. If I have sold out of a particular size that you wanted, please convo me to check how long the waitlist might be, or if I potentially can open a spare slot for you.

Payment schemes

Under extenuating circumstances, I offer payment schemes outside of Etsy. This usually involves once a month fortnight or monthly payments until the piece is paid off. The illustration will only be sent once full payment has been received. If payment is late and no communication from you is forthcoming after a month, I will keep 50% of the total illustration cost that has been paid due to inconvenience, and sell the illustration. Payment schemes do not apply to oracle readings.

Communication

Feel free to convo me here, or email me at ophelias.diary (at) gmail.com with any questions you may have. Remember that I am a part-time artist only, so I can take a few business days to reply. I am not in a habit of replying to emails on my days off, unless the email must be replied to with urgency.

Thank you for your interest in my artwork,
Happy dreaming!
