hand carved, cedar, definitely unique and special - no one will have another one like this one - hand painted, very beautiful expression, super carving. Even though it's small, this piece was a lot of work, see the little knife marks on it - I'm sure Wayne spent many hours working on this piece of Indigenous Art. It's signed and dated 1990 (I won't show the full signature in the image, but it's there)
Measurements: 3 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 1" (9 x 4 x 2.5 cm)
Meaning: The Raven is known to be the transformer, trickster and creator. In the Kwakwaka'wakw culture the Raven is known as the messenger of the sky and famous for being a somewhat mischievous glutton. He's always out to please himself and to have a good time. He's very adventurous.
