Hamatsa Raven, Josh Dawson (Kwakwaka'wakw), 28" x 28" x 8", $4,500

Original size is 547 × 650 pixels

While walking on the beach on Quadra Island, I came across some cedarwood and saw this Raven within, waiting to be released. I brought the wood home and took out my adze. Wood chips flew as I extracted the Raven from his cedar casing. My wife, Wanita, and my children, Ashlynn, Elissa, and new son James, looked on as Raven began to reveal himself to the world.
