The raven is one of the smartest of all birds and is recognized by its fluid wing beats and echoing calls. Bryson Bobelu's spirited Raven
welcomes the autumn season with its gurgling croak. Shorter days, cooler nights and leaves softly falling tell us the harvest season is nigh. Carved from jet, which is fossilized coal, this turquoise-eyed corvid is perched at about 2 1/2" tall, 3/4" wide and 1 3/8" deep. Minimal incising makes for lovely feather details.
