Have a look at this gorgeous piece of Indigenous art by Master artist Tom D. Hunt (Watawidi) from the Kwakiulth First Nation
just so incredibly detailed and deep carving lines - truly highest quality craftsmanship, and easy recognizable as one of Tom's pieces of Art. He just puts so much love and attention to details into his carvings. Also please have a close look at the solid yellow piece of cedar - it's so clean, but still showing some natural grain lines in the back. Another piece by a master artist, close to perfection.
