Jet Bird, Raven by Derrick Kaamasee

$ 80.00

A jet raven with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Derrick Kaamasee letting out a “caw”! Derrick knows exactly how to describe the raven's feathers - he utilizes different sizes of angled lines and arcs to great effect - for never do the lines seem repetitive or overstated. The raven has a polished smooth beak and rests on a well defined rock - so the talons stand out in low relief in the front and the tail can lyrically flow downwards on the back of the carving. The Zuni have told Sunshine Studio that ravens are filters - they can sieve out the good from the bad. The Zuni believe the ravens are messengers of the great mystery; so they represent a change in consciousness.
