Crow protector by Robyn Lakeman
For centuries, birds from the Corvidae family have featured heavily in folklore, art and mythology. Their presence has symbolised everything from death, war and reincarnation to power and kindness. It’s little wonder a creature so strongly associated with symbolism has also intrigued artists and designers and has proven powerful subject matter for all types of creative works. This collection highlights some amazing artwork on RB featuring crows, ravens, jackdaws and their relatives.
