Tlingit Indian Chief's Raven Rattle
The classic chief's raven rattle depicts the human lying on the back of the raven (with openwork beak), sharing his tongue with a frog, which in turn is held in the openwork beak of a kingfisher. The underbelly of the raven is also carved and painted with the face of a hawk, the tail serves as the handle.

The details are in red and black trade pigments on natural wood.

This is a rattle and also employed as a beater for a drum.

Mid-century carving, collected by Nelle and Gerry Ashton. 11 1/2" long by 3" wide. Unsigned.

Buyer pays $20.00 for shipping and insurance.
