Artist Statement : "Ko ishin (Raven) full of magical and supernatural power. He could turn himself into anything at any time. His legendary antics were often motivated by insatiable greed, and he loved to tease, to cheat, to woo, and to trick. But all too often the table were turned on the hapless raven."
