Truly beautiful and authentic piece of Indigeneous Art

EAGLE DANCE PADDLE by Laurence Scow from the Kwakiulth First Nation on Vancouver Island, BC, Pacific's Northwest Coast. 

Have a look at the details and the choice of color - it just is vibrant. Laurence shows off the beautiful piece of cedar, He carved this paddle for a potlatch and it clearly has been used in a dance. At the back of the paddle it shows the artists signature in pencil as well as the name of the lady who was dancing it. Since it has been used, it shows some signs of handling but only on the back. Please have a look at the images. It's easy recognizable as one of Laurence's pieces of art carvings, but in this one he put some extra love into it, you can clearly see it.

Measurements: 39" x 4" x 1" (99 x 10 x 2.5 cm)

Meaning: The Eagle symbolizes grace, power and great intellect. It is a sacred and noble creature representing power and prestige to the First Nations people of the Northwest Coast. It symbolizes wisdom and has a special and direct connection to the creator. Eagles mate for life and are therefore also seen as a symbol of lasting love and dedication. It is told that the Eagle end their own life in despair when the mate is lost. Eagle feathers are used in the most important ceremonies, a display of respect, courage, Chieftainship and wisdom. The Eagle is the ruler of sky.
