Ravens are one of the most intelligent animals on the planet....
Notice I did not say Bird....I said Animal.

The symbolic meaning of the Raven in Native American Indian lore describes
the raven as a creature of metamorphosis, and symbolizes change/transformation.
In some tribes, the Raven is considered a trickster because of its transforming/changing attributes.
Native holy men understood that what the physical eye sees, is not necessarily
the truth, and he would call upon the Raven for clarity in these matters.
Foremost, the Raven is the Native American bearer of magic, and a harbinger of messages from the cosmos.

Forever fascinating and mysterious, they live a complex life of family
and social strata, they have a language of sounds, and they collect
things they like. They've even been trained to talk, and their brains are
twice that of other birds the same size.

This is a casting from an Actual Raven Skull that a friend of mine found on
the beach near our homes. Raven skulls are very rare, and some believe
they hide the bones of their dead. Who knows?

This style has been made with a hole in the center to fit your basic
emergency candle, so this would be a really wonderful addition to your
mantel or shrine.
Your Raven will come with a candle, ready to enjoy.

This is cast in a hard Gypsum Cement called Hydrostone, which is the
material I use to do most of my castings, and it has been flattened on the
bottom for safe use. It measures 4 inches long and about 1.5 inches tall.
It has been finished in a natural bone look, using acrylic paints and finishes.
