RAVEN with Moon
wall art carving, gorgeous carving and expression. The Raven is shown catching the moon. Brian used Sitka Spruce for this piece which is really clean and has a gorgeous soft yellow color, brought out by polishing. As always, very clean lines of carving - AND, it's inlaid with Abalone which makes the piece even more outstanding. Clearly made to impress by a master of this art. It's carved in the front, made and prepared for wall hanging, signed at the back.
Measurements: 25 1/2" x 7" x 1/2"
Meaning: The Raven is basically 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 but he is also known to mourn loved ones. He's very adventurous.
