    Shaman. There's something dark about those long, sharp horns. I love it. I wonder what culture this is.

    Raven mask - Live food doesn't interest ravens; they prefer dead things, like roadkill and other birds' eggs. In fact ravens hold funerals for their dead. One bird will guard the body and rattle a death song, letting the other ravens know what has occured. They will form circle around the corpse, and dance round and round, croaking softly from deep within their throats. For this reason, the ancient Celts and other tribal people associated the raven with death Goddesses.

    Ilazki is the Basque Goddess of the Moon. She is the daughter to Lur, the Goddess of the Earth, and sister of Eguzki, Goddess of the Sun. As the light of the night, Ilazki was believed to give light to the souls of the dead, and graves often had pictures of the moon on them. It was believed to be most favorable to die when the moon was in its first phase, so that the soul of the deceased would grow as the moon did. Ilazki’s name, means “light of the dead."
