In many indigenous societies around the world, the direction North refers to winter, the warrior, darkness and transformation. Susan named this powerful piece of a figure clothed in fur and feathers and half-merged with ravens "Ancestor of the North”, tying it into those attributes.Please Note: Shipping to continental United States ranges from $8.50 to $12.50 as determined by PayPal.
In Native American cultures, the raven is a trickster and a symbol of metamorphosis, of change and transformation as well as a bringer of messages from the spirit realm. In this piece Susan evokes the idea of death and darkness tied to transformation, with the raven imagery; the infant, on the chest of the figure, represents hope, birth and new life.
