Illustrated
Holm, Bill, The Box of Daylight: Northwest Coast Indian Art, 1983, Seattle Art Museum/University of Washington Press, Seattle, WA, p. 26, fig. 13., identified as Northern Northwest Coast. In discussing the present lot, Holm begins with a comparison to another rattle included in the exhibition and illustrated in the companion book: "Although it follows the same configuration as the previous rattle, this one is quite different in feeling. The body of the rattle is flatter, and the neck much more angular. Elbows firmly planted on the raven's back, the man arches his torso, from which a frog emerges and bites the tongue. A prominent nose, rather than a hooked beak, protrudes from the tail-bird's face. The two-dimensional detail conforms to the formline tradition.
Raven rattles are typically delicate and light. The thin hardwood shell is very resonant. A thimbleful of tiny rattles enclosed in the body - sometimes pebbles but more often, in historic times, lead shot - strikes against the thin enclosure to make the swishing sound imitated by all the northern tribes in their word for the rattle, sasawkh."
