This is a sand-blasted and painted yellow cedar Raven Paddle by Trevor Hunt from the Kwakwaka'wakw Nation. Trevor has applied his sandblasted technique to this paddle and the result is a complex and deeply grooved contemporary design.
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.
