The Raven Totem painting has been completed. I just need to varnish it once it has set for a day. It is 24"x36" on exhibition canvas.
Background info on this Totem:
This totem was carved for the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia by Mungo Martin in 1951. It is a family pole in the Kwakiutl style.
'The crest figures on this pole show Thunderbird at the top. Next is the Ancestral Chief, followed by the Raven perched over the whale. At the base stands another chief, possibly Chief Kalilix himself'. (Looking at Totem Poles' by Hilary Stewart
This painting will be included in the upcoming Exhibition which opens February 16th in Mission BC.
