The Pacific Northwest tribal canoes are elegantly engineered and have a sophisticated art form of a very distinct style. They were used to serve their needs whether for travel, hunting or fishing. The hulls are carved and steamed into shape from a single log of a huge tree and can accommodate a large number of people. Each design was unique and often featured a Raven in its symbols painted on the canoe. I found this model, surprisingly, in Florida at the Silver Springs Museum. Using references from the shores of Vancouver Island and the many ravens I have observed over the years, I combined the three elements to create this composition.
