This is the second of my raven series of “storytellers”. The robe is carved from spruce root driftwood and the head and feathers are redwood. The “bag of tricks” is elk antler. I used the swell of the wood to make it look like feathers come out the bottom of the robe. The head rotates. I lived around ravens a lot in alaska and the one with his mouth open is much more typical then the one with his mouth shut. This carving is 2ft tall.

While the guy complaining to the sky’s is very elegant, his buddy has a more interesting expression. “Give it up already!”
Compelling work.
