The System of Wings

In the depiction of the cherub of San Marco, Venice, are described three pairs of wings. These wings can be experienced in our movement.

  • The back wing, spread sideways in the picture, connects to our shoulder blades.

  • The front wing, which is shown closed and pointing downwards, has its anchor point in the collarbones.

  • The upward-pointing wing is connected to the trapezius or hood muscle, which pulls from the occiput to the outer collarbone. Its association with a muscle is an expression of its relationship to our metabolism and will system.

Hildegard von Bingen says in her song to the power of wisdom:

You have three wings:
On high the one swings,
on earth the second labours,
and everywhere swings the third.
