Leather Embossed Passport Pouch with a Raven Design by Corrine Hunt.
Made in Canada.
Raven is a symbol of knowledge and creativity. He is known as a catalyst for change and is often depicted as a trickster in many stories teaching us life lessons. The Raven is often misbehaving but never boring, and through his actions, he brings necessary changes to the community. He could be taken as a symbol of the Coastal People's view that the world has many faces and is a place full of surprises, neither good nor bad, but often unpredictable.
Born in Alert Bay, British Columbia, in 1959, Corrine has been creating contemporary art that reflects the themes and traditions of her First Nations Komoyue and Tlingit heritage since 1985.
Corrine's works include engraved gold and silver jewelry and accessories, custom furnishings in carved stainless steel and reclaimed wood, modern totem poles and other sculptural installations.
A member of the Raven Gwa'wina clan from Ts'akis, a Komoyue village on Vancouver Island, Corrine’s rich family history includes internationally renowned First Nations artists Henry, Richard, and Tony Hunt of whom have influenced her art. Uncle Norman Brotchie was also an early teacher and mentor. Corrine, too has mentored First Nations and other artists and continues to be a strong and vocal supporter of the arts in British Columbia.
