The large black Raven (Corvus corax) is a mythical bird. It has a very central role in the Vikings mythology. The god Odin (Oden) sends his two ravens Hugin and Munin out in the worlds, both gods (Asgard) and mans (midgard), to gather information for him. It is not only considered holy but also very intelligent. Krax, ha de gött!
