A Death and Resurrection Legend:
A mama pelican kills her chicks and revives them 3 days later
by feeding them her blood.
[ADDENDUM, fom Lisl, which I can understand better: "The symbolism of the mother pelican feeding her little baby pelicans is rooted in an ancient legend which preceded Christianity. The legend was that in time of famine, the mother pelican wounded herself, striking her breast with the beak to feed her young with her blood to prevent starvation. Another version of the legend was that the mother fed her dying young with her blood to revive them from death, but in turn lost her own life."]
