The crow is an animal that in many cultures is seen as a bad omen, but there are others where it has been deified, or where it has been attributed with divinatory arts. Both Japanese and Persian considered it a solar deity, and according to Chinese culture, in the sun lives a three-legged crow. In the ancient Roman culture, it represented Apollo (Helios in the ancient Greece), deity of the sun and the light. In Norse mythology, Odin, the most important deity, had two crows, that represented the thought and the memory. These crows told Odin about everything that happened in the human world.
