Celebrating both a wonderful artist and crows, this piece is an ode to the art style and impact of artist Hilma Af Klint. Crows have journeyed with us throughout human history. Whether seen as familiars guiding us, messengers of doom, or scaring us as they swoop in protection of their young, crows are integrated into our folklore and daily lives.

This piece has been shown in multiple exhibitions, including those at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby, BC, The Outlet Gallery in Port Coquitlam, BC, the Envision Arts Black & White III Online Exhibit (Honorable Mention Award), and the Community Office Gallery (MLA Janet Routledge) in Burnaby, BC

Care Instructions: Do not hang in direct sunlight. Remove dust with brush attachment of vacuum or dry, clean, soft brush.
