    The seven ravens is a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. Here the seven ravens are carved out of wood.

    A man had seven sons and still no daughter, no matter how much he wished for it; at last his wife gave him hope for a child again, and when he was born it was also a girl. The joy was great, but the child was thin and small and, because of his weakness, was to have the emergency baptism. The father sent one of the boys hurriedly to the spring to fetch baptismal water: the other six ran with them, and because everyone wanted to be the first to draw, their jug fell into the well. There they stood and didn't know what to do, and no one dared go home. When they never came back, the father became impatient and said: "Certainly they forgot about a game again, the godless boys." He was afraid that the girl would have to pass away without being baptized, and in anger he cried: "I wanted the boys to all become ravens." Scarcely had the word been finished when he heard a whirring sound in the air above his head, looked up and saw seven coal-black ravens flying up and away.

    The parents could no longer take back the curse, and as sad as they were about the loss of their seven sons, they were comforted to some extent by their dear little daughter, who soon regained strength and became more beautiful every day. For a long time she did not even know that she had had siblings, for her parents were careful not to mention them, until one day she heard people say that the girl was beautiful, but actually to blame for his misfortune seven brothers. Then it was very sad, went to father and mother and asked if it had any brothers and where they had got to. Now the parents were no longer allowed to keep the secret secret, but said that it was heaven's fate and that his birth was only the innocent cause. But the girl made a conscience out of it every day and believed that she had to redeem her siblings again. It didn't have rest and rest until it secretly set out and went into the wide world to track down its brothers somewhere and free them, it would like to taste what it wanted. She took nothing with her but a small ring from her parents as a souvenir, a loaf of bread to satisfy her hunger, a jug of water to make her thirsty and a little chair to help her when tired.

    Now it went on and on, far, far, to the end of the world. Then it came to the sun, but it was too hot and terrible and ate the little children. It ran away in a hurry and went to the moon, but it was too cold and also gruesome and angry, and when he noticed the child, he said: "I smell human flesh." Then it went quickly and came to the stars, they were kind and good to him, and everyone sat on his own little chair. But the morning star got up, gave him a leg and said: "If you don't have the leg, you cannot unlock the mountain of glass, and your brothers are in the mountain of glass."

    The girl took the little leg, wrapped it in a handkerchief, and went away again until she came to the glass mountain. The gate was locked and it wanted to take out its leg, but when it opened the handkerchief it was empty and it had lost the gift of the good stars. What should it do now? His brothers wanted to save it and had no key to the glass mountain. The good sister took a knife, cut off a little finger, put it in the gate and happily unlocked it. When it was received, a dwarf came towards him who said: "My child, what are you looking for?" - "I am looking for my brothers, the seven ravens," answered it. The dwarf said: "The ravens are not at home, but if you want to wait here until they come, come in." Then the dwarf brought in the ravens' food on seven plates and in seven cups, and from each plate the sister ate a little chunk, and from each cup it drank a little piece; but into the last cup it dropped the ring it had taken with it.

    Suddenly there was a buzz and a gun in the air, then the dwarf said: "Now the ravens come flying home." So they came, wanted to eat and drink, and looked for their little plates and cups. One after the other said: "Who ate from my little plate? Who drank from my little cup? That was a man's mouth." And when the seventh got to the bottom of the cup, the ring rolled towards him. Then he looked at it and recognized that it was a ring from father and mother, and said: "God grant, our little sister would be there and we would be redeemed." As the girl who stood behind the door and listened heard the wish, so it stepped forward, and then all the ravens regained their human form. And they embraced and kissed one another, and went home happily.
