Huge Winter Raven by Jonathan Jacobson, 42"
HUGE Winter RAVEN
by the Kwakiulth Master Artist JONATHAN JACOBSON
made/prepared for ceiling hanging - truly a masterpiece and VERY impressive in it's size!!!
Cedar wood with so much cedar bark, truly amazing, inlaid with large pieces of Abalone, beautifully clean painting in vibrant partially sparkly colors to show the sparkles of ice and snow. Just a wonderful piece of true Indigenous Art. The large beak is articulated and can be clapped through lining. It makes a very powerful clapping sound.
The lower inside of the beak shows that the artist used some minor wood filler which is not visible from the outside.
and here are the measurements:
Total: 42" x 38" x 8" !!!! Raven itself without the cedar: 3 ft/36" x 11" x 8"
Total: 107 x 97 x 20 cm, without the cedar it's 92 x 28 x 20 cm
