This Raven Headdress was hand-carved by Kwakiutl artist David Mungo Knox. It has been carved from red cedar, painted in black, red, and blue acrylic, and features onlays of copper and cedar bark trim.
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.
