Artist Statement : This design illustrates the well known story of how Raven brought light to the world. A storyteller would take hours to tell the tale. Raven is facing upwards with the light in his beak. There is always a human aspect to Tlingit stories, and that is why there is a human face within the design. -- as related by Eugene Alfred
