I’d like to follow on some of my work with crow feet in the “Abracadabra” project.
The crow is interesting to me because of it’s dual persona. On one hand the crow is a creature of magic and witchcraft, linked with Odin an The Morrigan.They are known to be a highly intelligent animal that can solve problems and remember faces.A group of crows is called a “murder”.
On the other hand they are seen as a pest, crops are hopelessly guarded by scarecrows and the birds are culled by farmers with the aim to control damage.

I find it interesting that a bird can be revered and maligned in such a way.
But they prevail
