Amazingly powerful Art carving by Gino Seward, Kwagiulth First Nation

BEAR

made and prepared for wall hanging. Easy recognizable as one of Gino's pieces of Art - the cuts are deep and real, not much sanding, you can see the chips of the knife. it's domed just the right way to add to the expression, stained with really dark stain to accentuate the natural grain of the wood. Lots of work in this little gem

Measurements: 12" x 5 1/2" x 1 1/2" (30.5 x 14 x 4 cm)

Meaning: The Bear is a symbol for power, courage, physical strength and leadership. Warrior's e.g. are known to wear bear claw necklaces which meant protection. In Haida culture the Bear is referred to as "Elder Kinsman" and was treated like a high ranking guest.
