Raven Transforming into a Lawyer - isbn 1-894897-13-7

To negotiate within this hectic world, mired in the puzzles and conundrums of our age, it would befit the trickster to transform into a lawyer. This work of satire is carved in hematite, a hard stone, also known as Alaskan black diamond. Hematite, is a form of crystalline iron, FE03, it never rusts because it is already oxidized; obviously the perfect raw material for such a subject. I carved the master model sometime shortly after Delgamuukw vs The Queen. Occasionally I produce hand finished versions cast in silver, and copper, for those lawyers with an ironic sense of tradition.
