Not a murder of crows but a suicide.

This bulb has been carefully hollowed out and filled with both inspirational quotes of hope as well real life suicide notes. All is handwritten and crafted, there are 22 scrolls inside, each with a different uplifting quote or an actual suicide note. Some of the notes are from famous deaths (including Hunter S. Thompson), in which case the name, occupation, and year of death are given; all others are unknowns with only the age and gender quoted. Each scroll is tied with fabric and can be unraveled if you choose to open the bulb and look at them. Also inside are small handcrafted feathers of various colors (made of wax and hardened with mod podge), the feathers have small craft wire in them to give the appearance of quills.

On the outside are painted black birds in flight, escaping the small crack on the bottom of the bulb (ceramic paint, heated - will not rub off). Also emerging from the hole is a handcrafted crow/blackbird (made of clay & wax, sealed). Somewhat of a "release of souls" feel to it.

Capped on the bottom so it will stand alone on any flat surface.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions. Additional pictures can be provided upon request.
