Raven crest from the summit of a pole or beam end (19th century, Haida people, Alaska or British Columbia), British Museum, London, 19 July 2013. From the wall text:

Raven is a central crest and personality on the Northwest Coast. Human beings were discovered crawling out of a clam shell on the beach after Raven had helped to create the world. He used a black pebble to form Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands). Raven is a gluttonous trickster, always greedy and creative. Eagle is his constant competitor for food.
