"CREATION - A RAVEN" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA PAINTING OF A RAVEN © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY


finished frame size apx 20"x20"
Gold manufactured frame
comes with wire and ready to hang

This is my latest re-work painting.  I didn't change much, but I decided to change the color of the beak to gold instead of silver, and I reworked the rock a bit. To me it made a WORLD of difference with such a small change!


The Raven is filled with symbolism from all cultures.  Most think the symbolism revolves around death and the occult.  This is absolutely NOT true.  In fact, the symbolism involves words and meanings like wisdom, learning and even the Native Americans believed the raven held creation in it's "feathers".  Although I do not believe the raven created the world, I love the positive spin this bird holds rather than the spooky undertones he has a bad reputation for! 

HAPPY CREATING!
