Hand carved pendant by Harold Alfred. Perfect size for everyday use.
The creator, transformer, and trickster. He is mischievous and playful, symbolizing truth, knowledge, and transformation. Raven demonstrates the complexity of nature, and reminds us that not everyone sees the world in the same way. While a trickster, in many myths he is an aid to the creator, acting as the messenger from the sky, clarifying truths for the people, earning him the name “keeper of secrets”. In mythology the Raven released the sun and moon into the sky and discovered mankind in a clamshell.
Born and raised in Alert Bay, British Columbia on Cormorant Island to the Nimpkish band. Harold started to learn proper implementation of designs, history, legends and art forms at a very young age. Studied under the supervision of the present day Kwakiutl master artists. With the appreciation and knowledge of Kwakiutl art, he combined his techniques with woodcarving, silversmithing and three-dimensional shaping together, designed outstanding art pieces which have contemporary feeling and a strong sense of the past.
