‘Ascending’ by Francis Dick – First Nations Northwest Coast Kwakwaka’wakw Art presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: No condition to be noted.
Description by Artist: “Ascending is dedicated to my late cousin Anthany Dawson. One of his last pieces that he carved was a Raven headdress. It is one of the most beautiful three dimensional pieces I’ve ever seen. This painting (on which this serigraph is based) is of a Raven which is ascending to the heavens.
‘For you, Anthany, let your spirit soar forever and always.'”
