Raven and the Box of Knowledge is based on the work of renouned artist Preston Singletary. Mr. Singletary grew up in the Pacific Northwest. Both of his great-grandparents were full-blooded Tlingit Indians. His works explore traditional images and legends of his Tlingit heritage translated into works of glass. The image on this blanket represents Raven, a shape shifter and trickster who often employed crafty schemes to achieve his goals. In the story, the old chief who lived at the head of the Nass River kept his precious treasures- the sun, moon and stars- in beautifully carved boxes. Raven steals the light, and making his escape, carries the sun in his mouth.
