Bentwood Box - "Raven & Sun"
Regular price $69.99
In British Columbia, First Nations Peoples used these unique, and beautifully adorned traditional containers to store our most precious of possessions. These containers are commonly known as “Bentwood Boxes”. Aside from their decor, one of the aspects distinguishing the Bentwood Box from other wooden boxes lies in its construction. The body of the container is constructed using only a single piece of West Coast cedar! The cedar is grooved on the corners and thoroughly steamed in order to painstakingly bend the piece into what you see before you.
- Raven and Sun - This piece symbolizes the well know tale of how the Raven stole the sun and placed it in the sky as an offering to the world.
