Legend has it that the ravens at the Tower of London are the protectors of The Crown and hold the key to the security of the realm. Should the ravens leave the Tower, then the realm will fall. In this silkscreen print, the ravens swirl around the Tower, but are the defending or deserting the bastion of power?.
This 7 colour silkscreen is made on a heavyweight 300 gram handmade paper. The print is created by printing each colour separately, gradually building up the image.
