Ah, there we go. Behold the work of Austrian-born, Canada-based artist Otto Rapp. Gore. Rot. Death. Symbolism. It’s like Dali having a very, very, very, very bad acid trip.

The Raven is a symbol of the nigredo stage of alchemy. Nigredo, or blackness, in alchemy means putrefaction or decomposition. The alchemists believed that as a first step in the pathway to the philosopher's stone all alchemical ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively to a uniform black matter. In analytical psychology, the term became a metaphor 'for the dark night of the soul, when an individual confronts the shadow within'.

His price is meane, his venom very great His constitution cold, devoid of heat."
