Yin Yang Raven

In folklore and mythology, Raven often occupies dual roles: creator/destroyer, hero/villain, comic/tragic, generous/gluttonous.  Across cultural lines raven often was originally white in color, evolving into a separate, opposite black raven, sometimes earning his darkness through heroism, sometimes via less admirable traits. For me, the moral lies in the duality of nature that these stories embrace: the balance of Yin and Yang. In addition, research documents not only biological fact on Corvids but also their social behaviors, including play… behavior that has no other apparent reason beyond entertainment; a lone raven repeatedly dropping, then catching small objects in mid-air, groups flying together handing off strings or sticks to each other. Soaring in pairs, one raven might spontaneously tuck a wing and roll onto its back, mid-flight, to lock talons with his cohort, tumbling through the air in a partnership of play. I can envision black raven and white raven doing so… Yin Yang Raven.
