a raven lunatic.....

Legendary 9th century Viking commander Ragnar Lodbrok...

flew a banner embroidered with the image of a raven.



If this banner fluttered, Lodbrok would carry the day.

But if it hung lifeless, the battle would be lost.


legend ?



or raven lunatic...


it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

Well, I guess everyone has to put their faith in something and an embroidered banner is as good as a lot of things! Particularly if it looked like yours!
Best,
Susan

Spooky birds! I have some "faux" ravens that I love to put out for Halloween. Always reminds me of that Hitchcock classic...The Birds!
