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 $13.75 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.

We are currently not shipping Internationally, without the buyers pre-approval of the shipping costs.
Because of the potentially prohibitive increased cost of shipping internationally, (with the ability to insure the shipment), it is necessary to determine shipping cost prior to actually placing any international orders. The least expensive way to ship internationally is through US Priority Mail International but delivery is slow. (two to four weeks)
