Artist Statement : "The Raven is one of the most prolific figures in Haida folklore. He has a reputation of being conniving, mischievous and, in a word, self-centred. One of the reasons he usually gets away with this is that he's a shape-shifter. Another is that he has little or no conscience. But the Raven is a major contributing figure in a lot of the stories from Haida Gwaii. he is very much involved in stories such as the clam and the first people, Raven steals the light and other great stories."
