This piece has risen from the pages of Edgar Allen Poe's narrative poem.
The black Raven sits atop a human skull, claws gentle placed on the uppermost cranium. His feathers are beautifully sculpted to look as realistic as possible, much like the human skull which looks aged. Around his feet lie small roses, scattered both around and atop the skull. Beneath the rose garland, a golden crown can be seen, maybe the owner of the skull was more than they seem? Under the skull sits an opened book which is aged and discoloured from years of misuse. Scrawled on the pages are the words from Poe's The Raven.
Cast in the finest resin before being painstakingly hand-painted, this piece would take pride of place in any Gothic home.
