This is the instant before the Raven takes the Sun into his mouth and he, and the world, are changed forever. Ravens represent a conduit to the supernatural, a bridge from our world to the next. In my imaginings, the Raven stole the moon and sun from the spirtual plane and brought them into our world. In the process of bringing the sun to us, he was burned black, and so is covered in soot like a cloak that gives corporeal form. Underneath that thin layer, however, still resides the white spirit, full of raw energy and power.
