BEAR with EAGLE Mask
by artists Randy Stiglitz. member of the Coast Salish/Cree First Nations.He has many years of experience in this art and is just a very skilful and talented artist who is well known around the world.
This piece of art proves the beautiful craftsmanship, so detailed and the expression is just mesmerizing! The eyes are inlaid with abalone, the EAGLE is on top of the Bear. Beautifully detailed carving, the face is adorned with cedar rope, the mask itself is adorned with lots of cedar bark - just incredible - it's so much work to collect and treat the cedar bark. Wood used for the mask is pine. The painting is extremely clean and close to perfection. Just have a look, I will let the images speak for themselves - powerful expression, isn't it?
Measurements: wood itself: 12" x 11" x 10" (31 x 28 x 26 cm) the measurements does not include the rope nor the cedar bark!
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.
