    Firstly , for a moment I thought that was a stone sculpture…Secondly , if that was a stone sculpture , it would have been one of the cleanest statues to have existed. Here in India , such statues are merely a Fancy Potty for birds..They sit tight on the stones and keep shitting. And the Government just doesn't care.

  6. Wow, Interesting!

  7. Wonder where you heard the story. Good one!

  8. I have observed that ravens in the US too look big. Well they must have been exported from Europe I suppose.
