Abstract-Raven Bentwood BoxTrevor Angus (Gitxsan)
"Raven is one of the most important beings in Northwest Coast art and [oral histories], although the nature of his role varies from one culture to the next, and his predominance diminishes from north to south...Raven has the power to transform both himself and other beings. In stories, Raven is intelligent, curious, innovative and resourceful, yet selfish, greedy... and mischievous" (Shearar 2000: 19-20). - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crests, Beings and Symbols
