Beautiful piece of art by our dear late friend Harry T. Williams, a member of the Ditidaht, Huu-ay-aht First Nations from Port Alberni on Vancouver Island, British Columbia's Pacific Northwest Coast.

SEA RAVEN art carving

"old-school" very fine hand carving, piece of red cedar, rich in expression, the eye is inlaid with a thick solid piece of Abalone (Mother of Pearl). The carving lines are clean and deep, traditional colors, hand painted, decorated with cedar bark and rope (showing some minor signs of aging, please have a close look), signed at the back, made and prepared for wall hanging.

Measurements: 16" x 7" x 1" (41 cm x 18 cm 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.

Note: overseas shipping is available, costs ($65 CAD) added at check-out
