Description by Artist:
“This design shows us the Raven from the legend of Raven Stealing the Sun. Before the Raven could release the sun from its containment in a chief’s bentwood box he had to first transform into the shape of a boy. The boy is shown within the body of the Raven. The raven holds the sun in his beak after successfully capturing his prize. The form-line color is red, which is the color of life. The design is round as is the sun. It represents the transition of giving life and light.”

Notes from DaVic Gallery:
This Limited Edition silkscreen prints titled “Raven” by Eugene Alfred was published in October, 2002. It was hand produced by the screen-printing process. It is the only limited edition printing of this design. The artist was involved in the printmaking, checking the stencils and signing each copy in the edition: 200 signed and numbered copies, 20 artist’s proofs, and 1 printer’s proof. 3 Hors de Commerce copies exist and are defaced and all other trial copies have been destroyed and the printing stencils obliterated.
