The Art of Craig Kosak |
l ight of an inner spi r i t
The raven is intertwined in legends and mythology of
many ancient cultures as the embodiment of secrets and
magic, introspection and self-knowledge, traits often
shared with the moon in art and literature. This particu-
lar raven, Merlin, is at Yellowstone National Park where
he seemed content to pose with his beak white-tipped
from poking in the geyser’s mineral-rich debris. The
plumb line he holds suggests a dividing line between the
inner and outer world and also hints at the intelligence
and playful nature of the raven as trickster.
