During his six year stay on Haida Gwaii, Karel Doruyter found himself fascinated by the myths and legends surrounding the Raven. Instead of following a single tribe's version of these stories, he used a blend of similar or related myths occurring in peoples of the Canadian north, North West Coast, and the Siberian east coast. His paintings combine realism with the more stylized approach of the North West Coast native art.

Paintings based on the origin tales of raven, as handed down by the aboriginal people of the Pacific Northwest, Canadian North and Siberian East, took form while residing on Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands).
