The Sun represents abundance, life, healing, and warmth. Released from a box by the Raven, the Sun Chief inhabits the sky and could only be reached by climbing a chain of arrows. The Sun is often carved on totems and masks and sits atop the tallest totem pole.
Abalone is the inner shell of a marine mollusk, which comes in a variety of blues, greens, pinks, browns and blacks. Here in the West Coast abalone was a food source, and the shells were used for necklaces, head dresses, ornamentation and money. Abalone is said to have a calming influence, especially during emotional situations, and upheaval; bringing stability during tides of emotion. Also, it is considered good at boosting intuition and imagination, helping you to come up with new ideas when you are feeling blocked.
