Artist's Description

Carrion Crow shot above the Avebury Stones in Wiltshire, forming part of the Neolithic monument over 5,000 years old.

Extract: ‘Crow: From the Life and Songs of the Crow’ by Ted Hughes.

Crow Blacker Than Ever:

When God, disgusted with man,
Turned towards heaven,
And man, disgusted with God,
Turned towards Eve,
Things looked like falling apart.

But Crow Crow
Crow nailed them together,
Nailing heaven and earth together-

So man cried, but with God’s voice.
And God bled, but with man’s blood.

Then heaven and earth creaked at the joint
Which became gangrenous and stank-
A horror beyond redemption.

The agony did not diminish.

Man could not be man nor God God.

The agony

Grew.

Crow

Grinned

Crying: “This is my Creation,”

Flying the black flag of himself.
