I love the descriptions of the raven feet in this essay. I was initially drawn to crows’ feet in a previous project when finding the bodies of some culled crows.
The feet and their fingers seem so much larger when detached from the body. They become more humanised some how, until they are preserved and they stiffen.
I’d like to use the feet again in a sculpture piece, this time preserving them in a stance that would visually offer more life than the dried up feet I preserved previously.
