I was musing on this point as I went about my household chores earlier on. It had struck me quite peculiar that I'd ended up with no less than three raven figurines in my possession, all from different aspects of my life.
It wasn't planned, yet it happened. Testimony enough to the ubiquity of ravens in folklore and legend, literature and art, religion and mythology, history and the natural world.
There will be many more too, but I'm only contemplating where the raven has touched my life. It passed the time, while I did the washing up.
Fans of Edgar Allan Poe would like a raven figurine. I am one and I would. So too would those avid readers of every other cawing crow in fiction. I got Quoth. But these birds turn up in stories so often. There's another in Sandman that would interest me too.
Bookworms are potential recipients for a raven ornament gift.
I once watched a Heathen purchase a pair of matching raven statues to place inside his garden. They were unquestionably named Huginn and Muninn. I didn't have to ask him to know that, in his mind, those ravens referenced the messengers of the AllFather.
I have a Celtic equivalent right here. Other religions have their own ravens, though they all mean much the same thing - memory, truth, the telling of news, and the flip side of life. Nothing so morbid to reflect upon, in that divine context.
Religious people might appreciate the appropriate raven figurine as a present.
Goths too, and anyone with a taste for the darkness. Birdwatchers, and those with a love of the light, all the better to watch nature's vast aviary filling the skies.
Can you think of any more? My mind is still racing through them, but I'd better get on with what you came here to see - a collection of raven decorations for your home and garden, covering just a few of this iconic bird's myriad aspects.
