Artist's Description

The raven is a large, intelligent, black bird.

For some reason it is also the bird in the center of the sun (see also crow and cockerel) and this raven has three legs.

A creation legend has it that there were ten sun-ravens in the sky creating far too much heat, so the Divine archer Houyi shot down nine of them.

The Zhou dynasty’s emblem was the red raven.

Perhaps based on observations that corvids, including magpies, play tribute to their dead, they are considered pious and by legend ravens built burial mounds for distinguished people.

Like the crow, to hear the croak of a raven is generally unlucky but there are some times of day when it is auspicious.
