This was the first of two light balsa wood box tops I painted for a couple of jewelry boxes. It was the first in a series of ravens (or crows, I did both) and I still do love crows.
The Tree of Life is behind this raven, as is the Rainbow Bridge and another raven flies in from Northern European mythos. Memory and Thought were these birds' names, each assigned to sit on the shoulder of the main honcho, Odin. Or Woden (where we get Wednesday) or Wotan, depending on the story one reads. The god fears losing Thought, but admits he fears the loss of Memory even more. So human, these deities!
It's a little blurred, I think but will do for just show and tell here. Just plain old acrylics for kraftwerks.
Have a great weekend. Hopefully more show and tell in a couple of days!
