This beautiful, hand-carved panel by the world-renowned artist by Coast Tsimshian artist Roy Henry Vickers, depicts Creator Raven holding the world in his beak. Raven has a prominent role in the mythologies of PNW Coast indigenous peoples. Portrayed both as a trickster, god and creator of the world, Raven is responsible for bringing the world into being and is sometimes considered the individual who brought light into the darkness. In this depiction, Raven holds a stone in his beak which became the firmament on which humans now live. He is also considered a symbol of transformation.
This panel is in good to excellent condition and has been in climate controlled storage for several decades. Price negotiable.
