Raven is an unframed serigraph of a limited edition print series of 150. The print was made in 2003 by Roy Henry Vickers from the Tsimshian Nation. The print is signed, numbered and titled in original by the artist.

The image is 18 inches or over 46 centimeters high and 13 inches or 33 centimeters wide. The size of the print itself is 22 inches or 56 centimeters high and 15 inches or 38 centimeters wide.

Shipping to Canada and the USA is included in the price.

The following is quoted from Henry Vickers about this Print: “The bentwood box of the northwest coast has been the pallet for many artists over the centuries. Some of the most beautiful designs I have seen are on bent boxes. I have learned to bend my own boxes and apply original designs to them.

This work entitled Raven is an original design that will be painted on a box for my personal collection. The very obvious human face in the design is to signify that this is a crest design; the presence of the human indicates that the design is to be used by a chief or member of his family.

I was born an Eagle among the Tsimshian of Kitkatla; however I carry the Raven Crest from my adopted family in Skidegate and my family in Owikeeno. Painting and designing in the traditional style of my paternal ancestors is something that will always be part of my life and so I take pride in creating this design of Raven.”
