Psychopomp is a Greek word and is a title of Hermes, the messenger of the gods. Hermes is depicted with vestigial wings behind his ankles, a hint of his avian origins. Its meaning is a conductor of departed souls. The prefix psycho- means soul or mind. Here, pomp means guide or conductor, based upon the Greek verb to send. The English word pomp also arose from the verb to send, that is to send out splendid processions. We still play the music "Pomp and Circumstance" at solemn ceremonies. The adjective, pompous, added negative connotations to such ceremonies.

This site is dedicated to the idea that birds transport human souls both before and after one's lifetime. This idea has worldwide distribution. Examples exist in the Middle East, Tibet, North & South America. This idea can be as simple as storks bringing babies to expectant mothers. It may be as elaborate as supernatural condors taking the souls of the departed to heaven or hell.

I will be adding content to this page soon. Please visit the Pictures page to see images of condors as psychopomps in Peru.
