Raven Rex (Small View)

Click to see a medium view of "Raven Rex."

by Berry Herem
Raven Rex is a large five-color image with 14 pieces of actual hand-cut iridescent abalone shell appliqué. It portrays a particularly splendid Raven, the principle culture hero of the Northwest Coast Indians, standing before a classic flat frontal formline chest design of a second Raven figure reminiscent of the box that Raven is said to have stolen the sun from. Within the Raven image itself is a compact formline version of Raven as a half-human half-Raven figure holding a golden sun image. 
Raven Chief is a small lithographed version of the larger Raven Rex, with simulated abalone shell images.
