Artist list

Julia deVille
Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.' 

The Raven,  Edgar Allan Poe 


Ravens wearing marcasite encrusted silver sparrow skulls, kitten-drawn hearses, still-born fawns with saddles, a diamond and gold adorned gosling and a full ostrich skeleton with riding saddle.
