Various tales and legends about the raven and the eagle are creations of the tribes of the Pacific Northwest Coast. These tales are most prominent among the Tsimshian, Tlingit, and Tahltan people.
The raven is known by many different names by many different tribes and is a very important figure in both verbal and written stories. My individually hand painted cachet is a beauty.
A hand painted border of traditional native symbols frames the totem-type raven. The important connection between man and nature is demonstrated twice by the technique of personification. First, by giving the raven's head an almost human type appearance and second, by painting a chiefs portrait using the tail feathers. Finally, a 3-D appearance is achieved by having the head and tail project outside the frame.
