Artist Statement : This print of three ravens represents Richard Hunt, his father Henry Hunt, and his grandfather Mungo Martin. It is a tribute to the Raven family clan. Two of the ravens hold coppers in their mouths - symbols of the power and prestige of Mungo Martin. Painted in the form of a totem pole with a seal base, this is a strong traditional Kwakiutl design.
