Raven and the Light in Moon

Mask, designed, hand carved, hand painted by Janice Morin, a member of the Cree Nation, living and married into the Coast Salish First Nations on Sechelt, British Columbia's Pacific Northwest Coast. Detailed biography as provided by the artist below.

Janice's masks and art carvings are just so beautiful, you can clearly see the female touch. She has so many years of experience in this artform and it's well deserved to call her a master artist. This mask is so cheerful and mesmerizing, the 41 (yes, forty-one) pieces of abalone are fully inlaid in various sizes all over the piece. The moon is adorned with cedar bark rope and decoration. AND she carved it out of one solid piece of wood (alder), the face of the moon is not mounted on top but hollowed out of the wood, just fabulous. This is just an eye-catcher, it looks fabulous in every entrance or in every living room or wherever you see fit - it makes a room.

Measurements: 14 1/2" x 12 1/2" x 7" (37 cm x 32 cm x 18 cm)

Meaning: The Raven is known in legends as the one who released the sun, moon, and stars; discovered man in a clamshell; brought the salmon and the water; and taught man how to fish and hunt. The story of "Raven Steals the Lights" is legendary. (see more details above in our "about/legends-page". The Moon is associated with transformation since it controls the tides and illuminates the dark. It is seen as a guardian spirit
