Artist Statement : There are numerous stories about Raven in Northwest Coast culture. As he is full of mischief and often transforms himself into other beings, he is commonly referred to as 'The Trickster'. In this print Danny illustrates the story of Raven carrying the moon up to the sky as the sun sets on the horizon. (statement provided by Pacific Editions)
