ORCA KILLER WHALE on wooden base by Randy Stiglitz, a member of the Coast Salish First Nation
This is such an incredible piece. The images just don't do it justice and somehow the size doesn't come across. Here are the detailed measurements:
In total: 23" x 23" x 18" (59 x 59 x 46 cm), the body of the whale itself without the fins is 8" x 8" solid (20 x 20 cm); the base is 23" x 17" (59 x 44 cm)
Please have a close look. The quality is truly amazing - the Orca's body is inlaid with abalone (mother of pearl) all around. The whale is fully hand carved and hand painted all around. The details are incredible - Randy again put so much love into this piece. It's fixed on the base so it can not be taken off. It's a solid and just VERY IMPRESSIVE piece of Indigenous Art.
Meaning: The killer whale is a symbol for romance and harmony as Whales mate for life. The Whale is very family oriented and known to travel in large groups, never to be alone. They symbolize great luck and happiness, community and protection. They are a known to always be working together, take care of each other and to always help and protect each other.
