"From time to time pairs of ravens will take up residence around our corrals; one in particular that liked to hang out around the windmill served as great reference for this piece.
Although some folks have an bit of an aversion to these birds, historically in England, they were a good omen. Ravens were watchers who would guard the palace gate and keep evil from entering. One of these sculptures now sits on top of the rock wall, overlooking the garden in our front yard." -Jan Mapes
