Fabulous Ceremonial DANCE PADDLE, showing the RAVEN design by First Nations artist Sarah Daniels (nee Robertson)

hand carved, hand painted wooden paddle. These kind of paddles are quite important and used in most ceremonies. I'm enclosing a picture so you can see a paddle "in action", danced! 

The carving is simply fabulous, clearly done by an artist who loves her art. Every time I meet Sarah, she is surprising me with new designs and new ideas - just so incredible. Also, you can clearly see her experience - the lines are getting cleaner and cleaner, the painting is close to perfection and she clearly has a fabulous eye for design while keeping tradition and history in mind. 

Hand painted in simple black and red. Carved on one side, signed at the back.

Measurements: 36" x 5 1/2" x 1"

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.
