This large Raven Headdress is carved and painted by Kwakiutl artist Trevor Hunt. It has been carved from red cedar, painted in black, white, and red acrylic, with cedar bark hanging down.
Mischievous and curious, the Raven plays many important roles in Pacific Northwest Coast Culture. For some, he symbolizes creation, transformation, knowledge, prestige as well as the complexity of nature and the subtlety of truth. He also symbolizes the unknown and shows that every person sees the world in a different way.
