Common Species, Dignity, Song
Common Species: The predisposition of the Sparrow, defenceless against most predators, is a symbolism for the downtrodden masses in society. Even though they are defenceless, they still manage to survive and thrive as a popular species across the world. They symbolise the masses’ ability to survive whatever perils their masters subject them to.
Dignity: The Sparrow maintains its dignity and does not become downtrodden even though its inability to defend itself against predators is obvious for all to see.
Song: The Song Sparrow has two clearly defined spots on its throat and one on its chest. This signifies an ability to use one’s voice via the throat and heart centres as well as the ability to be proud of its dignity and to sing about it.
