The raven has connections with ancestral spirits, death, psychic realms and transformation among other things. This strong light weight skull was originally cast from a real raven and then reduced in size to a length of 2". It's made of strong, light weight onyx black resin with hand rubbed finish. The skull is fitted with an stretchy ponytail cord, so one size fits all. The cord,available almost everywhere can also be easily replaced if need be.
