#719 "Messenger of the Northwest"

Raven - "Messenger of the Northwest"
24"H 19"W 10"D
Edition 25

The Raven is considered to be the messenger between the living and the spirit 
world by many Pacific Northwest Indian tribes.  The Haida believed that Raven, 
creator of the world, brought forth light, life and order and that nothing could 
exist without Raven.  The sacred bird is honored in art and on totem poles 
reflecting the tales and mysticism that have developed around it.  
Some tribes believe that Raven teaches you to understand 
the language of animals and if Raven comes into your life, 
expect magic.  With Raven, human and animal spirits 
intermingle and become as one.
