1. Raven the Creator Marker
The marker is located at the base of the sculpture
Inscription. Raven is the Creator in many Alaska Native and American Indian legends. Elements from my 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 the Raven is symbolic of Mother Earth. The face on the back of Raven's head is representative of many transformations Raven could perform.
