A blanket with a story to tell, based on a work by artist Preston Singletary. The image represents Raven, a shape shifter and trickster. In the story, the old chief who lived at the head of the Nass River kept his precious treasures—the sun, the moon and the stars—in beautifully carved boxes. Raven steals the boxes and makes his escape into the night sky, carrying the sun in his mouth. The sun is a metaphor for enlightenment or knowledge. The ombred background shades meet at the center in vibrant colors of sun and light. A portion of the proceeds from this blanket will be donated to the American Indian College Fund (AICF) to help support tribal colleges.
