RAVEN Dance Rattle with Human riding on top by Wilson Bob from Nanoose Bay, Vanouver Island, British Columbia - this piece is dated 1998
The sound is very powerful, nice carving. The eyes of the Raven are inlaid with abalone, so are the eyes of the Whale spirit. It's decorated with cedar bark and comes with a wooden base. The artist, Wilson Bob, signed and dated underneath the base. Even though it's an older piece, it's in great condition, showing very minor signs of gentle handling. Have a close look at the images please, I let them speak for themselves.
Measurements: 14" x 5" x 3 1/2" Rattle itself (36 x 12.5 x 9 cm), the base is 6" x 4" x 2 1/2" (15 x 10 x 6.5 cm)
