RAVEN pendant - articulated, the beak opens and closes - truly a little gem - so precize and detailed.
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. Instead of the cedar bark on the large pieces, it does have red wool on it's head - just superb quality, truly impressive piece. It's not signed, but it's attributed to Gary Peterson from the Kwakiulth First Nation, but since it's not signed, I can't confirm that. Whoever the artist is, he put many hours working on this piece of Indigenous Art.
Measurements: 3" x 1 1/2" x 1" (7.5 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.
