‘Shine On’ by Ray Sim – First Nations Northwest Coast, Coast Salish Art presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts
Condition: No condition to be noted.
Description by Artist: “Shine On portrays the sun. The yellow face and hands are the main body and the rays are in the form of Raven with his head and wing in profile. I’ve used Raven because according to many stories it was he who put the sun in the sky in the first place. Raven usually brought about much of creation through folly, greed and trickery, rather than intending to.”
