Project Description

Raven Dancer, by Roy Henry Vickers

Raven symbolizes the unknown, wholeness, knowledge and has the power to clarify visions. He makes you aware of different perceptions and the subtlety of the truth. Everybody has their own truth.

“The Inspiration to make Raven Dancer came from close observation of Northwest Coast Indian Dancers and dancers from the Pacific Ballet Theatre of Vancouver. It was truly a bicultural creation, unique to British Columbia. For the Northwest Coast Indian artist, both the rhythm and movement of music and dance are intimately associated with two-dimensional design. There is a constant flow of movement reflected in the undulating form lines of all the art. The discipline of this ancient art is reflected in the power of the performer as he readies himself for the first steps.”
