This gorgeous piece is a hand carved and hand painted RAVEN Mask - articulated, the beak can be closed and opened through a thin lining - fabulous expression, nice clapping sound!!! 

Carved to perfection by Alfred Robertson, adorned with lots of traditional cedar bark as well as cedar robe which is so much work to collect and treat and cut before it can be used. Just think about the work and many hours the artist put into this piece.  The Mask is signed on the inside by "Alfred Robertson, Kingcome Inlet, BC

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.
