This unique sculptural composition beautifully pairs the art of taxidermy with a buddha belly bamboo base, a material collected by many Chinese artisans. The raven is poised in mid-caw, ready to burst into flight. There are several Chinese legends that refer to the raven living in the sun or carrying the sun across the sky. In Chinese art, ravens are sometimes used as symbols of filial piety because these intelligent birds were believed to feed and take care of their parents in old age. This raven comes with great provenance from a respected collector of fantastic curiosities.
