Emissary Raven  Tony Angell, artist. Cast bronze

Artist's statement:  The Emissary Raven piece was conceived as a "welcoming" form as travelers moved along the interurban trail into Shoreline. My experience in the wild fields of our region have often involved ravens acknowledging my presence with calls and flight displays.

The metaphoric ravens of stories and art in our Northwest Native cultures likewise are part of the fundamental creation myths that give such character to where we live.

I think this a fitting artistic symbol for our community that still enjoys the diversity of nature and the occasional presence of this symbolic bird.
