I went to the beach two days ago for driftwood.I carved this raven yesterday and fine tuned it today.I’ve been somewhat obsessed with this design after carving others( bear and eagle).The body is made of red cedar drftwood and the head and feathers are redwood driftwood. I also carved a “bag of tricks” from a piece of elk antler with redwood lid. I’ve named this series “storytellers”. This carving is 17” tall and the head swivels.

Nice work… it has a sort of ominous look to it.

Stunning!! I have been in love with this style since I first saw it at the Maloof house. One of his ‘boys’ had produced a series of Ravens that were similar but different. I thought they were great and this is the first I have seen that is in that vane. Great Job.
