Have a look - exceptional deep carving and gorgeous yellow cedar

KILLER WHALE with EAGLE and RAVEN Bowl (also looks great hanging on wall) - by artist Richard Carlton

Solid piece of yellow cedar, polished and painted in vibrant black and red, very powerful. The carving lines are extremely deep and detailed. Have a close look - I'm showing close-up images. 

Measurements: 25" x 11" x 1 1/2" (64 x 28 x 4 cm), dated 2014

The artist Richard Carlton recently worked with William Good and Joel Good as well as several students on carving a protection pole for a new Indigenous-focused childcare centre on Snuneymuxw territory.

Carlton’s life experiences help him empathize with the challenges the students face as they spend time with him learning about spiritual aspects of their culture through carving and how to handle the power tools they’re using to shape the pole.

“When I was a kid, I kind of lost everything and being a teenager and not having mentors I could look up to I kind of lost focus, like a lot of kids do nowadays,” Carlton said. “We express ourselves in so many different ways and carving is part of our culture and it’s kind of becoming lost. Hopefully it will inspire some of these kids to express themselves in a different way.”
