“Trickster, villain or hero — Raven of all the birds appears to fit all these roles. His appearance alone oozes cunning and mysticism. Raven is great subject to explore. This work borrows from the Northwest Coast story I read of Raven abducting the moon from Chief Gray Eagle. The moon appears tearful on Raven’s back.”
Raven Stealing the Moon is a portrait of Raven entwined with the light taking flight with the moon.
