Raven In The Moon

There is always a magic in carving

Chief's Cradle for our First Grandchild

Life is a learning process. What you start with is not always what you turn up with. There is a power in the journey.

Trust yourself. The carving will be what you want. After days. After making that mental contact, the emotional feeling, and then the linking. Each carving is a work of art and each is an individual piece.

There is a power in masks. This is Volcano woman, her eyes are crafted from Abalone shell, on her forehead is the frog. An icon of the small frogs the boys were burning. It angered her that life was taken so carelessly so she flooded the villiage with lava. Lava flooded the whole valley and whereever you walked was lava.
