Verbal Description: This carved sculpture is two raven birds perched on a stone. Both birds face to the left, but their chests are positioned in opposite directions. The birds are solid black, smooth, and polished. In contrast, the stone, which is just slightly larger than the birds, is dull and varying shades of gray. Its texture is scratched and bumpy. The artist has signed their last name—Angell—by carving it in all capital letters diagonally across the stone.
