#44 Remarque: "Harbinger of Light"

Harbinger of  Light

Raven, the trickster:
The Haida Indians believed raven - creator of the world - took light from a cedar box and lit up the world.  While flying with the light in his beak he was startled by an eagle close by and dropped the light which hit the earth and broke into three pieces.  Two pieces became the moon and stars.  He ascended to the heavens with the third piece creating the sun.

Harbinger of Light was influenced by many trips to Southeast Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.
