Decorative relief carved raven ceramic tile

Happy April fools, a good day to feature one of our custom instalations with the trickster raven in it.

Although the origins of April fools day remain a mystery,  historians believe it evolved directly out of one of the many ancient renewal festivals practiced by cultures around the world. These festivals held to celebrate the return of spring often involved ritualized forms of mischief and mayhem. The wearing of disguises and playing of pranks was common. Social order was symbolicly challenged for a strictly set time then restored, reafirming the stability of the society and the cycle of life. It is frequently suggested that the feast of Lud,  held in honor of Lud an ancient Celtic god of humor,  was the forerunner of April fools day.

  1. Hello,

    I loved all of these posts. It is really amazing.This tile has a notch in the back for easy hanging and can also be installed along with a matching plain tile as a decorative accent or feature on the wall or floor. Thanks a lot.....
