WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN: A KINDNESS OF MUNINN by artist Samantha Mullen

$ 675.00
Pyrography illustration (burned into wood) on birch ply with acrylic highlights, 11” x 13”


The venery term (historical hunting term) for flocks of the common raven is “an unkindness of ravens”. In reality, the common raven is known to exhibit empathy and is one of the most intelligent species of avian creature. Muninn (memory) is the name of one of Odin’s ravens in Norse mythology. A Kindness Of Muninn is my way of memorializing this caring parent and trickster.

What Goes Up Must Come Down, as a series, explores the life cycle experienced by those creatures of the sky who become part of the earth upon their expiration.
