The black Raven is usually associated with the trickester and the creator, in North American native culture, able to pass between our world and the spirit world.
The raven either black or white brings the secrets of magic between our world and the spirit world.
Great Spirit lives inside the void and emerged from the Great Mystery.
Raven is the messenger of the void.
My Raven skull vanitas painting is so beautiful with pink arctic rose flowers and periwinkle forget- me-nots representing the spirit. The theme of spirit and duality reoccurs frequently in my art. I find very satisfying the Yin and Yang philosophy; that in opposites lay the paradox that we are related to each other, in creation we need both sides. The Ravens are mythological birds which carry messages to the spirit world. Nothing is ever black and white. Yes these are this things I contemplate while creating my art.
