Raven and Moon
Snaw-naw-as Nation artist Brian Bob has hand carved another stunningly beautiful work of art here. Yellow cedar Raven's body is stained dark while Moon's natural colour is left as-is, with abalone shells inlaid in both.
"In many First Nations legends Raven is a trickster who helped create the world. In one legend, Raven stole Sun, Moon, Stars, Fire and Water from Grey Eagle, the Guardian. However, Moon was too heavy for Raven so he threw it into the sky, providing us with its silvery light in the night. Raven was originally snow-white but, while carrying Fire, his feathers were turned black by the smoke."
