Jet Bird, Raven by Derrick Kaamasee

$ 360.00

A large jet raven with big turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Derrick Kaamasee making the loud raspy signature call, described as a “caw”. Derrick has incised creative marks on the bird suggesting feathers - different areas are 'described' with different markings & the talons are depicted in fine form wrapped around the branch perch. We have been told a raven doesn't have to be a bad omen; the Zuni artists say the ravens are filters and they are messengers of the great mystery; so they represent a change in consciousness - all good! Most carvers will also tell you the big jet black birds seen in New Mexico are crows though, not ravens.
Artist: Derrick Kaamasee (signed)
Size: 6-1/8 in. long x 1-3/4 in. wide x 4 in. tall
