Raven Transforming Porcelain Platter
"The Raven was the first symbol and crest of the NWC peoples. As the creator's assistant, he created all things that exist - with mysterious trickery. The mystical bird is a symbol of prestige and is a cultural hero." —Kelly Robinson
This beautiful porcelain platter is decorated with a graphic, all-over Raven Transforming motif by Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth artist Kelly Robinson. Raven is one of the most important symbols. He represents creativity and knowledge. Known as the trickster, Raven helps the Creator bring the light, and so the Raven symbolizes creation. This platter is the perfect size for serving an appetizer, or for using it as a catch-all dish at your desk or entryway.
Kelly Robinson, born in Nanaimo BC, has roots and family that originate in Bella Coola, BC with descendants from both the Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth nations. He is known for carving specifically in the unique design forms of the Nuxalk people.
