Raven and the Box of Knowledge Blanket by Preston Singletary, Pendleton Woolen Mills.
This Beautiful woolen blanket represents Raven, a shape shifter and trickster. In the story, the old chief who lived at the head of the Nass River kept his precious treasures—the sun, the moon and the stars—in beautifully carved boxes. Raven steals the boxes and makes his escape into the night sky, carrying the sun in his mouth. The sun is a metaphor for enlightenment or knowledge. The Ombre background shades meet at the center in vibrant colors of sun and light.
