Whether or not you are familiar with the legend, or other stories about ravens, the character of this bird is beautifully and explicitly captured in this bronze.
His stance and features are so expressive, that he really does seem to be watching us from his perch.
As well as being irresistibly eye-catching, Fiacc makes a great conversation piece, especially when you divulge the name and retell the story. The little raven has amazing tactile qualities - surprisingly weighty and cool to the touch.
It is important to us at Author that traditional craft skills such as the ‘Cire Perdue’ technique used to create Fiacc are not lost. Being able to continue through Fiacc both the oral tradition of passing down legends and the ancient metalworking skills gives us a grounding and reassuring connection to the past.
