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.
Trevor Angus was accepted into the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art at K'san in Hazelton BC, at a young age. At the Gitanmaax School, he studied under Master Carvers Ken Mowatt and Vernon Stephens. For four years he studied and learned to design and carve panels, masks, rattles, paddles, ladles and steam bentwood boxes. Since graduating from the Gitanmaax School, Angus has apprenticed under Phillip Janze to hone his skills in gold and silver jewelry engraving. Angus creates his panel works in cedar wood, incorporating traditional K'san style and design. He is a practiced carver and his pieces are thoughtful, consistent, and deeply etched. He now lives and carves full time in Vancouver.
