4 Ravens Nevermore!
Title: 4 Ravens Nevermore!
Date of Creation: 2004 commission
Location: 6801 Gaylord Pkwy
“This piece is meant to exist on different levels. First, it is a group of whimsical ravens that inspires one to smile when you see them move. Secondly, I see this as a study in social interaction, whether it be a group of birds or people. The inspiration comes from watching both the birds and people in their natural surroundings.” - Joe Barrington, Artist
