Raven








This bronze Raven stands over 8' tall. It was created by John Hoover in 1998.

Raven is the Creator in many Alaska Native and American Indian legends. Elements from many different legends are incorporated into this sculpture including "Raven Stealing the Stars, Sun and Moon." The human figures in the claws symbolize icons used by the Russian Orthodox faith and the face in the belly of Raven is symbolic of Mother Earth.
