Really interesting piece.
Raven Mask, articulated and signed by First Nations artist Andrew Mack, a member of the Toquaht First Nation (Nuu-chah-nulth).
This piece is dated 2004 so it's not new and the cedar bark around this piece is showing signs of aging and some minor losses. Nothing unexpected, but I still want to point it out. The mask itself is in excellent condition.
The raven is beautifully painted, very minimal, the artists focus was to show the beautiful wood, the grain is very nice and it just doesn't need much painting. The beak is articulated and can be closed by pulling on a string. Nice clapping sound. This is a great piece for a collector, it shows the traditional and old style of the raven and just has a very strong expression.
Measurements: 25" x 5" x 6", total height in stand is 21", the base is 13" x 5" (64 x 12.5 x 15 cm, height 53.5 cm, base 33 x 12.5 cm)
Meaning: The Raven is known to be the transformer, trickster and creator. In the Indigenous 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.
