Art: Murder of Crows Come to Roost by Artist Nancy Denommee
“A ‘murder’ of crows is based on the persistent but fallacious folk tale that crows form tribunals to judge and punish the bad behavior of a member of the flock. If the verdict goes against the defendant, that bird is killed (murdered) by the flock. The basis in fact is probably that occasionally crows will kill a dying crow who doesn’t belong in their territory or much more commonly feed on carcasses of dead crows. Also, both crows and ravens are associated with battlefields, medieval hospitals, execution sites and cemeteries (because they scavenged on human remains). In England, a tombstone is sometimes called a ravenstone.” Painting of a group of crows coming to roost for the night. Some of them have already staked out their spot while the rest are still in the sky. I love to watch the hundreds of crows flying over just before dusk and then back again in the morning. Acrylic paint on wrapped canvas. I have painted the edges so it can be mounted directly on the wall with no frame necessary. Original one of a kind painting, not a print or copy. Signed and dated on front, signed, dated and titled on back.
