Ballad Ballads Bare Body Crows Dine Knight Plan Slain Wind Banes


EDITORS COMMENTS
This hauntingly beautiful print depicts the traditional Scottish ballad "The Twa Corbies" (Two Crows), which tells the chilling tale of two crows planning to feast on the body of a newly slain knight. The caption above the image reads, "Twa Corbies, come an' sit on yon elm-tree stump, An' sing a song for our dear Lord Jamie MacDougall, Who was slain on the green, An' his body lies mair blythe than the rest." The image captures the crows, perched on a tree stump, looking down at the white, pristine body of the knight, spread out on the grass below. The crows, with their dark, beady eyes and sharp, curved beaks, seem to plot and scheme as they wait for the wind to blow away the last remnants of clothing and dignity, leaving the knight's body bare for their feast. The ballad, which has been passed down through generations, is a poignant reminder of the transience of life and the inevitability of death. The crows, symbolizing death and decay, are a stark contrast to the once proud and powerful knight, now reduced to a mere corpse. The print, with its rich colors and intricate details, brings the words of the ballad to life, transporting the viewer back in time to a world of medieval Scotland, where the supernatural and the natural coexisted in a delicate balance. The image is a testament to the enduring power of traditional ballads, which continue to captivate and inspire us with their stories of love, loss, and the mysteries of the natural world.
