Man and Woman with Raven. Raven encloses both figures protectively with his wings. Eyes are emphasized with the use of jade. The Man’s eyes are wide in amazement, while the Woman has yet to open her eyes. Raven’s eyes are bright as he observes the new life he is in the process of creating. The forms flow together to create complex though unified images with a strong focal point—in this case the head of Raven. Curvilinear lines and shapes derive from the artist’s study of Bering Sea and North Alaskan art and masks. The circular, revolving composition of the sculpture emphasizes the evolving nature of the story that is literally unfolding. The figures are tightly unified before they emerge into the world as separate entities.
On one side, a snowy owl with outstretched wings above which is a hunter’s face. On the other side, in the centre, is a polar bear surmounted by a howling dog and hunter. Along the edges are bear claws and tracks.
