It is one of the best-known allegories of Christ, and it is in this form that it figures as the seventieth emblem of the Ars Symbolica of Bosch: Also one of the principal symbols in alchemy, it is to some extent the antithesis of the raven.

    Symbolizes authority, responsibility, and sacrifice for others; it is said that when a pelican can’t find food for its young, it nourishes them with its own blood. Because of these connotations, it’s related to paternal love. It indicates a feeling of generosity toward people close to you, but could also be a symbol of an excess of responsibilities that burden you. In this case, the dream is interpreted as the need for a well-deserved break.
