This unique sculptural composition beautifully pairs the naturalism of taxidermy with an abstract 19th-century Chinese wooden scholars' root. The raven is poised as is mid-caw, ready to burst into flight. Several Chinese legends reference 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 curiousities

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
