Creative, imaginative and superior in problem solving,
this bird has been revered in myth and legend for centuries.
Among the Norse,
Raven banner standards were carried by Jarls of Orkney,
King Canute the Great of England,
Norway and Denmark,
and Harald Hardrada.
Symbolic to the Celts
the goddess Morrígan alighted on the hero Cú Chulainn’s shoulder
in the form of a raven after his death.
Bran the Blessed translates to
raven whose head was buried in the White Hill of London
as a talisman against invasion.
Of the Tlingit and Haida cultures,
the Raven was both a Trickster and Creator god;
revered as one of Morgana’s messengers.
Even in Edger Allen Poe’s famous poem
it is a harbinger of thought provoking tidings.
In my collection of jewelry,
I have created a Pair of Ravens flying across the sky,
wings resting on the wind.
