Raven

All posts tagged Raven

The Raven is a bird of legend and superstition and there are a number of places on the Island which include Raven in their names. The Island has a strong Viking element in its history and Odin, the Norse God, was, according to mythology, accompanied by two Ravens. During the Millennium Year of 1979, a replica of a Viking longship was sailed from Norway to the Isle of Man by a mixed Norwegian and Manx crew. The longship, which is now preserved on the Island, is called “Odin’s Raven”.

“The Raven”

Loving this new Raven tree sculpture that has cropped up in Ballaugh Plantation, whoever has done it deserves a big well done.

These two bronze sculptured Ravens are erected on the rocks high above Ballafayle in memory of  the late Sir Charles Kerruish (1917 – 2003).  Sir Charles was a well known politician and former Speaker of the House of Keys.

What a beautiful and peaceful place this is.
