This piece was inspired by my home state, Alaska, and part of a series. Ravens are considered to symbolize creation, knowledge, prestige as well as the complexity of nature and the subtlety of truth. He also symbolizes the unknown and is there to show that every person sees the world in a different way as another. The Raven was often called upon to clarify truths in visions, as the wise elders knew that what the eye sees is not always the truth. Many of the original peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast refer to him as a god, and it is believed by some that messages from the creator or the cosmos are buried in the wings of the Raven only to be released to the families most deserving of his knowledge. The Raven is a long distance healer and is known as the “keeper of secrets,” he helps us in our lives by exposing the truth of kept secrets that could potentially harm us, in doing so he helps us back to good health.
"Raven's Ocular Moon" was originally drawn on Bristol paper with Micron ink pens. It is printed on 8.5x11 gallery quality paper, ultra smooth, and acid-free. It is very detail oriented - and all hand drawn, with no sketch before. Shipped flat in acid-free sleeves and will be hand signed.
