The Raven Dance


  • Medium: catlinite
  • Size: 3.5 × 3.5 × 1.75 inches
  • Reference Code: W71001


The Bear would eat the fish whole and then go to sleep.

One day the Raven laid a bet with the Bear to get the Bear to dance like him. The Bear couldn’t hop like the Raven and he lost the bet, so the Bear would have to save the fish scraps for the Raven and that’s why you see the ravens hovering around the bears when the bears are fishing.
