The Raven was the first symbol and crest of the Northwest Coastal Indians. As the Creator’s assistant, Raven helped to create all things that exist. This mystical bird is a symbol of prestige—a cultural hero. Ravens are known for their amazing mimicry of sounds and speech.
This symbol was chosen for Ron because he is a creator of musical gifts—transforming notes into melodic sounds that transcend language barriers and, with Raven’s help, are lifted off the page to be given life and to soar into creation.
It was a pleasure to design and carve this one-of-a-kind symbol of Ron’s creativity.
