This miniature wooden sculpture captures the attitude of this brash bird. How many ravens have we seen in this posture announcing their presence.

The piece is a study in black and white. It’s difficult to photograph black and show the nuance of the color, but you can see that black is not purely black, and white is not pure either. A close look at the white rock brings the question- is it a rock or a skull? Hence Edgar. It is in a private collection.

It is carved of tupelo, painted in acrylics and stands four inches high.
