This delightful trivet shows Raven paddling his magic canoe, which could shrink to the size of a pine needle or expand to hold the universe. The trivet is made from recycled glass and is heat resistant to 340 degrees Fahrenheit. Designed to be used, the trivet has protective felt dots on the back to prevent scratching fine surfaces. Alternatively, the trivet can be displayed as art -- a small hole is drilled in the back for easy hanging. Size is 7-1/16 by 7¾ inches. Color is Rosewood. Designed by Andrew Williams. Made in Canada by Boma.

  • Raven
    The most important of all creatures to the Northwest coast Indian peoples was the Raven. He took many forms to many peoples -- the Transformer, the cultural hero, the trickster, the Big Man. Full of magical powers, the Raven could transform himself into anything. He put the sun in the sky, the fish in the sea, the salmon into the rivers. His antics were often motivated by greed, and he loved to tease, to cheat, to woo, and to trick.
