Raven Rattle - wood carving by Troy Roberts
A Raven Rattle - Carved in the shape of the bird - generally indicates a chiefly or high ranking figure. A shaman's rattle is double-sided, symbolizing life and death , or the veil between the human and spirit worlds. Traditionally, rattles and their noises may contain magic. The sound of rattles is used to calm and tame wild dancers in some ceremonial performances.

Carved from red cedar with acrylic paint and varathane.
