Raise Ravens by LorenaAlvarez Raise Ravens by LorenaAlvarez
(and they'll pluck your eyes out)

"Cría cuervos y te sacarán los ojos"

My contribution to the "Baker's Dozen" exhibit at Gallery Nucleus :). It is inspired by the spanish proverb "Cría Cuervos y te sacarán los ojos", and Poe's "The Raven"

Acrylic over cotton paper.

Their my favourite too, but read 'the raven' by edgar allen poe. It explains a lot about the bad rap, and leanr about the proverb too, it sounds interesting to me.... hmmm.

This is so beautiful! The texture and figures look so wonderful and interesting. The calligraphy is great as well! Born left handed, I will never amount to handwriting like that.
The subtle ghost heads are a nice touch as well! Love it!
