Designed by Tlingit artist Preston Singletary, the image on this blanket represents Raven, a shape-shifter who often employs crafty schemes to achieve his goals. In this story, the old chief who lives at the head of the Nass River keeps his precious treasures — the sun, the moon and the stars — locked away inside beautifully carved boxes. Raven steals this light and makes his escape into the sky, carrying the sun in his mouth. The sun represents enlightenment being given to all people.
Mr. Singletary's artworks are included in museum collections from the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC to the Handelsbanken in Stockholm, Sweden. He is a member of the Board of Trustees for the Seattle Art Museum.
A portion of the proceeds from this blanket will be donated to the American Indian College Fund to help support tribal colleges.
