Raven

How is it with you ravens, whence are you come
With gory beak at the dawning of day?
You lodged last night I ween [suppose]
Where you knew the corpses were lying

This comes from an old Viking song. The raven was worshipped and revered by the Vikings, it was the symbol of the chief of gods.

Here is my raven god. He is cut from a population map of London. I love the fiery colours of the map, they go with the feisty raven.
