Siva was a Spring deity who is often related with white birds, especially swans 🦢
• Roman Venus (and others) was associated with such animals
• Snakes, too, were linked to her. It was said “white snakes could fly” (and winged dragons myths may come from such powerful images)
Of course, this is the very tip of the iceberg, but it shows that the study of old languages can tell us so much.
